Accidental: Single Vehicle Accident

At approximately 2130 hours, Ranger Beaulieu, 23, was responding to the report of a wildfire near the Agua Canyon viewpoint in Bryce Canyon National Park. At milepost 11.8 on Route 10, he failed to negotiate a curve on a rain-slick road. The vehicle left the road, sheered a large tree and continued rolling down an embankment. Although both airbags deployed and Ranger Beaulieu was wearing a seatbelt, he suffered a massive head injury and died instantly. The crash was discovered approximately 45 minutes later by campers, who summoned authorities. Ranger Beaulieu was survived by his parents and a daughter. His bronze name plaque is sponsored by Clearfield Police Chief Jim and Cheryl Schilling.

    Ranger Beaulieu interned for a summer with us at Presque Isle Police Department [Maine]. After his death, Michael’s parents generously gifted us a Saint Michael and fallen Officer print to hang in our new Police Department; they included Michael’s “baseball card” with his information on it.

    We’ll always remember Michael as having an innate sense for Law Enforcement and were proud when he became a National Park Ranger. We still remember Michael as our intern and thank his parents for their gift of both the print and Michael. Rest in peace, Michael, we’ll take the watch from here.
