Trooper Randy K. Ingram
October 5, 1994

Randy Ingram joined the Utah Highway Patrol in August 1984. He served at the Kanab Port of Entry and later as a field Trooper in Fillmore. In 1988, he transferred to Juab County.

On October 5, 1994, Trooper Ingram stopped a van occupied by Boy Scouts whose trailer taillights were not working. A semi-truck driver traveling on Interstate 15 fell asleep, drifted into the emergency lane, and struck Trooper Ingram’s patrol car. Proper placement of Trooper Ingram’s patrol car saved the lives of the scouts, but cost Trooper Ingram his life.

The truck driver pleaded guilty to negligent homicide. The stop occurred near milepost 207 east of this memorial marker.
