The Florida Highway Patrol is mourning the loss of one of its own.

FHP says 39-year-old Trooper William Dyer suffered a stroke while driving out on patrol on I-10 causing him to crash his patrol car back in October. Dyer was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he died Wednesday.

FHP Dyer is not considered to have died in the line of duty because his death was not the result of a crime or an accidental death. A service for Dyer will be held Sunday at the Culley's MeadowWood Timberlane Rd Chaple.
