Albany--The Georgia State patrol is mourning the loss of one of its own.

Corporal Mike Young died in a car crash on August 19th during a high speed chase along I-95. He was assisting a fellow trooper. Young worked in Brunswick but had friends and family here in Albany.

His youngest daughter attends Albany State University. Governor Sonny Perdue ordered all flags at every patrol post lowered to half staff.

Troopers also wore black tape over their badges to honor Young.

"Mike went to trooper school with me back in 1986. We graduated from the 61st trooper school together. I've known Mike since then, and he's going to be a loss. It's a burden to all of us," says Sgt. Jamie Sullivan, with the Georgia State Patrol.

Young is the 26th member of the Georgia Department of Public Safety to be killed in the line of duty since the department was founded in 1937. His funeral is scheduled for tomorrow.
