The California State Capitol will recognize Monday the loss of Alhambra patrol officer Ryan Stringer, 26, who died in the early hours of Sunday morning.
"Anne and I extend our deep condolences to Officer Stringer's family, friends and colleagues. In the prime of his life he made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of protecting his community," Governor Jerry Brown said in a statement released Sunday.
Flags are at half-staff for Stringer, who was responding to a call about a burglary when he collided with another officer. The other officer, whose identity has not yet been released, remains hospitalized at Huntington Memorial Hospital.
Officer Stringer, who was from Whittier, CA, joined the Alhambra Police Department in January 2009. He is the fourth Alhambra officer to die in the line of service.
He is survived by his mother and father, Debbie and Sonny Stringer, of Whittier, CA, according to California NewsCape. He is also survived by his four sisters, Kristen Stringer-Bartel, Kym Stringer, Dana Stringer and Donna McCulloch.
