Mother texts son who died in high-speed chase, gets response

(KUSA) - As a teenager, Taylor Thyfault was exceptional. Thyfault didn't dream about becoming rich or buying a mansion. He wanted to be a soldie, and the best man he could be. By the time Thyfault was 21 years old, he was already an Army veteran and in the final stages of his cadet training with the Colorado State Patrol. On May 23, 2015, Thyfault was on assignment with Trooper Clinton Rushing on a crash investigation on Colorado Highway 66 near Weld County when they were warned about a high-speed police chase coming their way. They deployed stop sticks to attempt to stop the suspect. The driver missed the stop sticks and crashed into both men. Rushing was critically injured, Thyfault died at the scene. His mother, Carole Adler, knows she was the last person Thyfault sent a text message to on the day he died. They routinely communicated throughout the day. Just a few weeks after Thyfault's death, Adler felt the urge to text him to tell him she missed him and she loved him. She knew this was a one way conversation, but it helped her feel close to him. After sending several text messages, she got a response. Sergeant Kell Husley from the Greeley Police Department got a new work phone this summer. He noticed the text messages instantly but assumed they were the wrong number and ignored them. It was that one message late one night that made him stop and think about his response. "So I sent a text back and identified myself, and said 'I'm with the Greeley Police Department, and I don't think your texts are going where you think they are,'" he texted.
