Godspeed Patrick Sirois

According to the OHP, Sirois was on his way to visit family in Wagoner. He was northbound when he saw a 2004 Ford pickup disabled in the southbound lanes. The OHP says Sirois stopped his vehicle, put on his reflective vest and crossed the median to help the driver, 28-year-old James Snowden, of McAlester.

The OHP says both men were standing near the truck when they realized that a 2004 Ford Taurus was going to collide with it. According to the OHP, Sirois pushed Snowden out of the way, then the Taurus hit the pickup which pinned Sirois against the guardrail.

Sirois was pronounced dead at the Eufaula hospital. Snowden was not hurt.

    From The Oklahoman, via Officer.com —

    EUFAULA, Okla. — An off-duty Texas police officer’s last act was to push a man out of danger as a car sped toward them Tuesday in McIntosh County, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

    Patrick Sirois, 50, a Nolanville, Texas reserve officer and full-time Fort Hood civilian police officer, was headed to Wagoner to be with his family for Thanksgiving when a wreck took his life, patrol Lt. George Brown said.

    Sirois had stopped for a pickup that had been in a wreck in the southbound lanes of U.S. 69 a mile north of Eufaula about 7:50 p.m. Tuesday, the patrol reported.
