Help CMPD Officer Goodwin's Family

Donation protected
This story has us heartbroken in our household today, and the time of year paired with the story of Officer Mia Goodwin's young family makes it unbearable. We learned that Officer Goodwin has 3 children under the age of 4, and she just returned from maternity leave from the youngest. She was CMPD and her husband is a Fire Fighter. Heroes both of them.

We feel so helpless sitting here learning about this tragic story - so we wanted to do something, no matter how small, to let that family know: you have been here for us day in and day out - in your time of need this community will be here for you.

Please help us spread the word and raise some funds to give to Mia's family in this impossible situation.
Story: CMPD officer dies after wreck involving police vehicles, truck; I-85 shut down
A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer has died after a wreck involving at least two CMPD vehicles and a tractor-trailer that shut down southbound lanes on Interstate 85 early Wednesday. Police Chief Johnny Jennings, in a post on Twitter, said Officer Mia Goodwin died. Goodwin served in CMPD’s University City division, Jennings said. “Rest easy hero, we have watch from here,” Jennings said in the tweet. The interstate will be shut down for “an extended period of time,” CMPD said in a tweet at 4:42 a.m. All southbound traffic will be diverted at Mallard Creek Church Road, police said. The crash at W.T. Harris Boulevard happened around 3:30 a.m., according to Observer news partner WBTV. Two CMPD officers were assisting with shutting down the highway because of an earlier wreck when they were struck by the tractor-trailer, WBTV reported, citing the North Carolina Highway Patrol. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police respond to the scene of a wreck involving CMPD vehicles and a tractor-trailer on Interstate 85 in northeast Charlotte on Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2021. A tractor-trailer jackknifed in southbound lanes as a result of the crash, and one CMPD vehicle had “heavy rear-end damage,” WSOC reported. Video from WCNC shows police vehicles escorting an ambulance away from the scene. Drivers are asked to avoid the area and use U.S. 29 as an alternate route, the N.C. Department of Transportation said on Twitter just before 7 a.m.
