An account has been opened to receive donations to send the wife of a deputy who died after a wreck while on call to Washington, D.C., to honor him and other fallen officers.

David Lambert, who was 38, died July 20 from injuries he received in a car crash June 24 while responding to assist another deputy.

Annette Lambert would like to be there to see her husband’s name, and that of other law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty last year, be unveiled on National Police Memorial Wall on May 13.
