"Trooper Lee Huffman Memorial Highway" Kentucky Highway 218 Dedicated in Metcalfe County

(COLUMBIA, KY) -On October 16, 2003 the Columbia State Police Post conducted a Memorial Highway dedication at the Metcalfe County Courthouse Annex to honor fallen Trooper Lee Huffman, a Metcalfe County native.

Trooper Lee Huffman was killed while working an automobile accident in Hardin County, Kentucky on May 19, 1953.   He was assigned to Post 4, Elizabethtown.

Trooper Huffman's death occurred while he was carrying out his sworn duties as a Kentucky State Police Officer to serve and protect the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

On March 20, 2002 Governor Patton signed Senate Bill 18 which allows the Kentucky state police commissioner to request a state road, or segment of a state road, to be named in memory and honor of troopers who have died in the line of duty. Since 1948, 23 troopers have given the supreme sacrifice to insure the safety of Kentuckians.

Senator David Karem was the primary sponsor Senate Bill 18, which passed unanimously in both chambers of the Kentucky General Assembly

"This as well as the 22 others that will be erected across the Commonwealth, serve as a permanent reminder to all of us of the courage and commitment Kentucky State Troopers face every day," remarked Commissioner Simpson.
