COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Family, friends and fellow officers gathered in front of the Commerce City Civic Center Tuesday night to honor fallen officer Curt Holland.

"Curt, we are all here because we love you and we miss you," said fellow Commerce City officer Michael Kim.

Detective Holland was killed in a car crash Friday evening.

The 37-year-old Holland was with the Commerce City Police Department for four years.

"Curt was different. He was so charming, so endearing, so caring," said Commerce City Police Officer Conni Crook.

Colorado State Patrol believes the driver who hit Holland, Fructoso Rosales-Cano, may have been drunk and speeding. Rosales-Cano was taken to the hospital that night with serious injuries. CSP did not know if he is still in the hospital but said he’s still alive and has not been arrested.

The crash remains under investigation.
