Texas Detention Officer Dies in Motorcycle Crash

By King Law Firm on May 7, 2013

A Harris County detention officer has died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in which another vehicle was involved.  As reported by KHOU 11 News, investigators stated the man was riding his motorcycle westbound on FM 2920 when the driver of an SUV pulled out of a Kroger parking lot and into the path of his motorcycle.  The force of the impact was so severe that the off-duty officer was thrown from his bike, crossed the center lane, and struck an oncoming vehicle.

Witnesses to the crash were horrified.  One emphasized the importance of defensive driving these days because people “drive like idiots.”  The officer was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital via Life Flight Helicopter where he remained conscious for a brief time, but physicians could not save him due to the severity of his injuries.  According to the preliminary investigation done by Precinct Four, the off-duty detention officer was wearing his helmet.  His damaged helmet was located at the scene of the crash.

The victim had moved to Texas with his family, his wife and young daughter, to accept a position with Harris County as a detention officer in the summer of 2012.  The victim was a native of Monroe, Louisiana where he graduated high school from Monroe Area High.
