KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The visitation and funeral service for Kansas City Officer James Muhlbauer and his K-9 Champ will be held Wednesday.

Muhlbauer was killed last week when another driver hit his patrol vehicle.

Muhlbauer, a 20-year veteran of the Kansas City Police Department, and K9 officer Champ were patrolling near the intersection of Truman Road and Benton Boulevard.

Video showed the police officer was traveling eastbound on a green light. Prosecutors say 18-year-old Jerron Lightfoot was driving at 85 mph and ran a red light, striking the patrol car.

That crash caused a second collision with a pedestrian. Emergency crews pronounced the pedestrian, 52-year-old Jesse Eckes, dead at the scene.

The crash knocked Muhlbauer unconscious in the driver’s seat, and he was taken to an area hospital with critical injuries. Champ was in the backseat of the patrol vehicle at the time of the crash. Muhlbauer later died at the hospital. Champ was killed at the scene.

Services will be held at Municipal Auditorium with the public visitation being held from 9:30-11 a.m. The funeral will begin at 11:30 a.m. There will be no graveside services.
