CHP Gold Run Mourns The Loss Of Officer Nathan Daniel Taylor

Gold Run, CA…This is a very sad day for the CHP as we say goodbye to a member of our family. While investigating a traffic collision on Saturday afternoon, in the area of westbound Interstate 80 at Castle Peak Road, Officer Nathan Taylor was struck by a vehicle. Officer Taylor is part of the Gold Run family and has been a member of the CHP for almost six years. Tragically, he succumbed to his injuries and passed away late Sunday night.


Officer Taylor was a dedicated officer who gave his life serving the people of California. He now joins a distinguished group of heroes whose names are engraved upon the CHP Memorial Fountain and who will forever be remembered for their valiant sacrifice and service.

We appreciate the continued outpouring of public support as we go through this incredibly difficult time.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, colleagues, and friends in this time of mourning.
