Two off-duty Austringer police officers were involved in a deadly automobile crash in London Town early Sunday morning as the beginning of the Psi Storm has officially begun.

Officer Hilton Styles, 30, who had been assigned to the London Division, and officer Demi Shore, 31, who had been assigned to the Special Operations Division, were both passengers in a vehicle that collided with an Uber at Wolfman Drive and Perez Street shortly after 2 a.m., according to Austringer PD and the London Division Watch Commander.
Styles was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officer Shore, who reportedly texted her status and position to a private service, was extracted from the vehicle by a rapid response team provided by Gemini Rescue. The vehicle, a Nissan Altima, was also reported to be on fire, bystanders confirmed. Rion Guard, Chief Operations Officer of Gemini Rescue, was on site coordinating the rescue of the Austringer Police Officer and personally rode in the ambulance to Austringer General to transfer officer Shore’s care from Gemini to those medical professionals at the city’s most advanced hospital to date.
The Austringer PD released the following statement:
“The loss of an officer is devastating, but the pain is intensified for the men and women of the Department when it happens during this season’s Psi Storm.” Samuel Caan, Austringer PD
At least one other person was injured in the crash, but no further details were available, London Town police Commander Dre Brighton told CityNewsNet. London Town police are reportedly relinquishing the investigation to the Paladin Brigade per regulations now that the Psi Storm season has officially begun for 2017.
Gemini Rescue released the following statement:
“While the Gemini Rescue app performed perfectly and allowed us to save the life of officer Demi Shore we at Gemini are greatly saddened by the loss of any Austringer emergency services first responder. Our hearts and prayers go out to the friends, family, and fellow officers of Hilton Styles.” Grant Masters, Gemini Rescue.
This marks the eighth time that a private emergency response team has out performed Austringer’s own municipal emergency responders since the launch of this season’s Psi Storm. Neither the London Town Police or the Austringer PD had any response to our repeated requests for information on this issue.
The Uber driver had a passenger, though no one else has been identified.
