Police members honoured

Horsham Rural City Council has turned the Horsham Town Hall blue in honour of four police members killed in a horror accident in Melbourne.

Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor, Constable Glen Humphris, Senior Constable Kevin King and Constable Josh Prestney died after been hit by a truck in Melbourne on Wednesday.

It is the biggest loss of officer lives in a single event in Victoria Police's history.

Leading Senior Constable Taylor and trainee officer Constable Humphris pulled over a Porsche that was allegedly driving at 140kmh along the freeway.

Senior Constable King and trainee officer Constable Prestney, who were stationed at Nunawading Highway Patrol, were called to help impound the sports car after the driver allegedly returned a positive drug test.

Shortly after they arrived, a refrigerated semi-trailer drove into the emergency lane, killing all four officers.

The tragedy follows the death of Horsham policeman Heath Martin who was found dead in the Grampians last week.
