Dispatcher Killed In Crash With Pastor Driving Wrong Way

Dispatcher Killed In Crash With Pastor Driving Wrong Way

Authorities say "alcohol is suspected to be a factor with the wrong way driver".

A Minneapolis 911 dispatcher who worked "day-and-night to keep people safe" was tragically killed over the weekend after her vehicle was struck by a church pastor who was driving the wrong way and is believed to have been drinking, police say.

State Patrol officers say when they got on a scene, they smelled alcohol coming from Richard Shaka's body and they plan to seek a charge of criminal vehicular homicide. He is now in critical condition at North Memorial. Frey also noted Bixby was an extraordinary person.

"She loved helping other people, that's why she was working in 911 dispatch", her husband Dan told WCCO.

Her husband, Daniel Bixby, heard the call on a police scanner in his home, and later had the news confirmed by state troopers who visited him.

Jenna Bixby was killed Saturday night after her auto was struck by a wrong-way driver.

'She was on her way to work to help other people, to answer these types of calls for vehicle accidents and anything else that - other emergencies that people need help with'.

Bixby started working with Minneapolis emergency communications almost four years ago and helped train new members, the Star Tribune reported.

Shaka was the founder of the All Nations Christian Assembly in North East Minneapolis, where he served as a pastor for 17 years. She died in 2016. The pair were both professors at North Central University and had ministries around the world.

In a Facebook posting Sunday morning, Daniel Bixby wrote: "Please know that I never stopped loving you with all my heart, and I will never stop loving you".

Family, friends and colleagues to both Bixby and Shaka spoke about the shocking tragedy after.

"Minneapolis' Emergency Communications staff work day-and-night to keep people safe".

The director of Minneapolis emergency communications, Heather Hunt, said Bixby also helped coach and develop new employees and was a member of the Community Outreach and Education Team, which volunteers at community events. Jenna embodies the caring, dedication and compassion that are the hallmarks of exceptional public service.

"We just want to know why", said Nikki Orlicki, Bixby's sister, Sunday afternoon. "She will be greatly missed".
