On August 10, 2018, at approximately 9:01 AM, a member of the CHP - Golden Gate Division, Solano Area Office, Officer Kirk Griess, gave his life in sacrifice for the community in which he served.

Motorcycle Officer Griess was on a traffic stop behind a Saturn SUV on the right shoulder of Westbound I-80, near Manuel Campos Parkway. For still to be determined reasons, a white Chevrolet pickup truck veered towards his location and collided with the CHP officer and the Saturn. Officer Griess was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

Griess was a 19-year veteran of the CHP and had worked at the CHP Solano Office for the past 16 years. He was a Marine Corps veteran and is survived by his wife, two daughters, ages 25 and 21, and a 14-year-old son.
