NJ flags to fly at half-staff to honor fallen Millville officer

MILLVILLE - Acting Governor Kim Guadagno has ordered flags at all state buildings to be flown at half-staff to honor a southern New Jersey police officer killed in a crash.

The flags will be lowered tomorrow in tribute to Christopher Reeves.

The 40-year-old Millville officer died early Sunday when a driver, who allegedly was fleeing from police, collided with his police cruiser. The driver and another Millville officer were seriously injured in the accident.

Reeves' survivors include his wife, who also is a Millville police officer, and their 2-year-old son.

Guadagno is serving as the state's chief executive while Gov. Chris Christie is out of state.
