Gov. Chris Gregoire just issued this statement:

I am deeply saddened about the deaths of three Washington State Patrol employees – and send my heartfelt condolences to the friends, families and co-workers of those tragically killed. These individuals dedicated their lives to protecting our neighbors and communities, and should forever be remembered for their commitment to ensuring our safety. I’m sure all Washingtonians share my profound gratitude for their service.

I remain in close contact with WSP Chief John Batiste – and have assured him that the state will provide any necessary support to his staff as the investigation continues.
