MISHAWAKA, Ind. — A Mishawaka policeman and his police dog have died in a traffic accident in the northern Indiana city.

Mishawaka Police Chief Mike Samp says 42-year-old Cpl. James Szuba (SOO’-buh) and his dog Ricky died Saturday night.

Szuba was providing assistance on a call when the squad car was sideswiped by another vehicle.

Samp says the officer was using lights and siren on his car when the accident occurred. However, a witness, Dale Edmiston, told WSBT-TV that Szuba’s emergency lights were on, but not his siren.

A news release from the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office says the second vehicle was driven by 31-year-Shawn Devine of Mishawaka.

    sad That the man that killed him was a convicted criminal, several DUI, OWI.. was to be home at the time of the incident. Due to a POT bust and probation violation. Was 3 x the legal limit. What are they going to do.. W/ a 31 yr old felon that NEVER had a drivers license. I live in the city that Officer Szuba and Ricky patroled. A very good man. family man and He will surely be missed. RIP..Let them take it from here!
