Oakland Police Department, California
DOD: Thursday, July 22, 2004

Officer Seuis was killed when his police motorcycle was struck by a tractor trailer on I-238 in Castro Valley. Officer Seuis was transported to a local hospital but succumbed to his injuries.

The tractor trailer fled the scene, but was stopped by a California Highway Patrol officer approximately 10 minutes later and the driver was arrested. The driver, an illegal alien, was charged with felony hit and run. A year later the charges were dismissed because of insufficient evidence.

Officer Seuis had served with the Oakland Police Department for 16 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
