COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – Colorado State Patrol invites the public to remember one of their own with a memorial set up in Commerce City. Trooper William Moden’s vehicle is parked outside his CSP office.
Moden was hit and killed Friday night as he investigated a separate crash on Interstate 70 near Deer Trail. He spent 12 years with CSP.
“He loved his family. He loved being a trooper and he loved his pursuit of trying to make a difference. That’s what Will did and he did it every single day,” officials said.
It only took a few hours before the first donations started to pile up at 8200 U.S. 85 in Commerce City.
Moden died after he arrived at the hospital.
CSP asks those looking to donate to Trooper Moden and his family to donate to the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation and select the Moden Family Fund, or donating to the Adoption Exchange in tribute to Trooper Moden.
