  • CHP officer ceremony

    OAKLAND — A California Highway Patrol ceremony for a fallen comrade backed up traffic for several miles on northbound Interstate 880 from 66th Avenue through San Leandro.
    The event was to honor CHP Officer Brent Clearman, who was on patrol the night of Aug. 5, 2006, when he was struck by a car on the 66th Avenue ramp onto northbound I-880. The 33-year-old died the following day, and the person responsible was eventually convicted in the case.
    A portion of the interstate is being named in honor of his life and service.
    Clearman joined the CHP in 2004 after spending 12 years in the U.S. Marine Corps. He served in Iraq and was trained as a sniper.
    A sign was unveiled this morning on the highway, and Clearman was remembered by speakers at an event at the Elihu Harris State Building.
    The new highway designation "underscores the risk that officers face every day when they're out there performing their duties," said CHP spokesman Officer Sam Morgan this morning.

    It certainly shows the media's regard for the officer's sacrifice when the lead of the story is about the event slowing traffic.
