State Police released images of the SUV they believe struck and killed a retired police officer Wednesday on Route 125 in Kingston.
Retired Hudson police officer Donna Briggs, 59, of Derry was training for the Police Unity tour by riding along Route 125 near New Boston Road on Tuesday morning when police said she was struck by a dark-colored Yukon manufactured between 2000 and 2006, according to State Police.
The impact sent her and the bicycle down an embankment where she was located Tuesday night by Kingston Police around 8:30 p.m. Briggs had been reported as missing and Kingston police had been looking for her.
After reviewing surveillance video from several businesses police said the Yukon has front-end damage to the passenger side of the front bumper and hood area.
Messages of condolence came in from all over for Briggs and her family.
"Briggs was an exceptional police officer and I was honored to present her w/ the DARE Officer of the Year award as governor," U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, tweeted. "This is a tragic loss for the community.
U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-NH, was "devastated" by the death and sent thoughts to her friends and family in a tweet.
"Sgt. Briggs, the first female Sgt. of the Hudson PD, was a true trailblazer and steward of our community," GOP First Congressional District candidate Matt Mowers wrote on his Twitter account.
Potential primary opponent Gail Huff Brown also offered condolences and a hope for justice.
