CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (LEX 18)– Local law enforcement in Kentucky lined up to show their support for a fallen officer as his motorcade drove through the Bluegrass.

Officer Nicholas Galinger was killed over the weekend in a fatal hit-and-run accident while he was inspecting a hazard in the roadway.

The suspect, Janet Hinds, fled the scene at the time of the accident, but later turned herself in.

The procession left Tennessee and is headed up I-75. Law enforcement officers lined the roadway in I-75 to show their respect.

The motorcade will end in Cincinnati, Galinger’s hometown.
