A Savannah police officer was killed early Friday morning on Interstate 16.
Police said Officer Anthony Christie was directing traffic around a crash when a tractor trailer struck his patrol car. Savannah Police Chief Mark Revenew spoke this afternoon, wearing a black band over his badge.
"As a chief, this is the worst day you can ever have," he said. "We'll get through it. You know, it's tough, but it's a strong department."
Officials said they were providing counseling for officers who served with Christie.
