NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Friday marks a somber anniversary for the city of Nashville.

One year ago, Metro Nashville Police Officer Eric Mumaw was killed in the line of duty while trying to save a woman who drove her car into the Cumberland River.

During the rescue attempt, 44-year-old Mumaw went missing in the river.

The woman behind the wheel of the car, Juli Glisson, is charged with vehicular homicide and aggravated vehicular homicide. Her case is still working through the court process and has not yet gone to trial.

On Thursday night, Nashville lit up the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge and the Metro Courthouse in blue in Mumaw's honor.

Mumaw was an 18-year veteran of the police department. He received the department's Lifesaving Award on April 27, 2011.

Many of Mumaw's friends have said that he loved working the midnight shift and always had a big smile on his face.

The Madison Precinct will be gathering at noon on Friday to remember Mumaw.
