This Day in History By Doug Miller
On the afternoon of Thursday, January 24, 1980, Trooper Charles Vogel age 25 assigned to the Springfield Patrol Post was killed in the line of duty.
Trooper Vogel was investigating a motor vehicle crash on I-70 at Sr-68 when he was struck and killed by another vehicle. The other vehicle lost control on the icy snow-covered roadway and struck Trooper Vogel who was standing in the median.
Chuck was a member of the 104th Academy class which graduated on January 12, 1979. He was the 28th member of the Ohio State Highway Patrol to have lost their life in the line of duty. RIP Trooper Vogel.
