TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE JUNCTION OF CUSHMAN DRIVE AND BALDWIN ROAD IN RICHLAND COUNTY "DEPUTY DARRAL KEITH LANE, SR. MEMORIAL INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERSECTION CONTAINING THESE WORDS.
Whereas, Deputy Darral Keith Lane, Sr., joined the Richland County Sheriff's Department in February 2006 after he retired from the United States Army in which he served twenty years; and
Whereas, Deputy Lane met an untimely death on December 14, 2007, in the line of duty after a heart attack following a car chase and foot pursuit of a suspect; and
Whereas, just prior to his death, Deputy Lane had been named Deputy of the Quarter for the sheriff's department. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott called Lane a great cop who was doing his job; and
Whereas, Deputy Lane was survived by his wife, Sheila, and two sons, Darral Lane, Jr., and Darius Lane; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that members of the General Assembly pay homage to Deputy Darral Keith Lane for his ultimate sacrifice to Richland County and the State of South Carolina by naming an intersection in his memory. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the junction of Cushman Drive and Baldwin Road in Richland County "Deputy Darral Keith Lane, Sr. Memorial Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection containing these words.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
