“It’s always difficult when you lose a friend in the line of duty,” said Deputy Joe Trejo of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “(Hamson) worked in the Traffic Unit here at the Santa Clarita Station.”

Hamson was struck by a vehicle while he was conducting late-night traffic control around 1:30 a.m. for a collision on Sierra Highway.

He suffered severe injuries that he never recovered from, Trejo said.

He served at the Santa Clarita Station from 2003 to 2008, and is memorialized by Dep. Randy Hamson Court, which crosses Via Princessa southeast of Highway 14 Freeway.
