IRWINDALE (CBSLA.com) — A memorial dedicated to a slain Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy was destroyed in a solo-vehicle accident earlier this month, officials said Thursday.

The accident happened around 7 a.m. on Nov. 11 in Live Oak Avenue in Irwindale.

A female driver and her passenger were returning from work when she “fell asleep and collided with the memorial and a tree at the location,” Deputy Hector Figueroa said.

The memorial was constructed by members of the Irwindale Police Officers association to honor Deputy David W. March, who was murdered by a career criminal at the location after an April 29, 1992 traffic stop.

No one was injured in the accident.
