Remembering Officer William Mathews of the Wayzata, Minnesota Police Department

Several police officers stand in a line, all giving their attention in unison.

On behalf of Meuser Law Office, P.A., we extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Officer William Mathews, 47, who was struck and killed by a motorist in the early afternoon on September 8, 2017. Officer Mathews was removing dangerous debris in the roadway when he was hit by an SUV and died of his injuries.

Officer Mathews is a nine-year department veteran who was proud to serve the Wayzata and Long Lake communities. His family says law enforcement was his “calling” and he loved his life serving as a police officer. Officer Mathews leaves behind a wife and young son.

Meuser Law Office, P.A. has represented hundreds of police officers, firefighters, state troopers, and paramedics and understand the dangers faced each day they put on their uniform. Motor vehicle accidents pose a great risk to first responders. We respect the risks they take performing their daily duties to keep our communities safe and take this time to simply say thank you.

Please keep Officer Mathews’ family, friends, and fellow officers in your prayers.
