The crash occurred at approximately 10:15 p.m. near the intersection of Truman Road and Benton Blvd. The patrol vehicle then struck a pedestrian.
Officer Muhlbauer was transported to the hospital, where he died later that night. The pedestrian, as well as Officer Muhlbauer's K-9 partner Champ, died at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries.
