(Died October 10, 2007)
Officer George Brentar was killed when his
patrol car struck a light pole.
Officer Brentar had spotted a speeding motorist on North
Lakeland Boulevard, just north of I-90, and was attempting to
catch up to the vehicle when his patrol car hydroplaned and the
right rear end hit a pole. The patrol car burst into flames,
with Officer Brentar trapped inside.
Two off-duty police officers from Erie, Pennsylvania, who saw
the accident while driving on I-90, stopped and tried to pull
Officer Brentar from the burning car, but were unable to.
Officer Bentar had served with the Euclid Police Department for
22 years. He is survived by his wife, son, daughter, mother, two
brothers, and two sisters.
