Officer Jeff McCoy Down (Texas)
Courtesy of KTXS-TV
Officer Jeff McCoy died in a car crash early this morning at South 14th and Ballinger.
Police say a car driven by 28 year old Marcos Suarez was traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on South 14th. McCoy's patrol unit was eastbound. Suarez lost control, crossed into oncoming traffic and slammed into McCoy. McCoy's unit collided with a utility pole before coming to rest.
Authorities say McCoy most likely died on impact.
He had been with APD for almost 18 years, serving in the patrol division that entire time.
Suarez is in serious condition at Hendrick Medical Center . Police are investigating whether alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. McCoy leaves behind a wife and a 2 year old daughter. He was an active member of Beltway Park Baptist.

What a shitty way to go, RIPJust because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.
Rest now knowing you served your country and community proud, by standing fast on the thin blue line.
You will never be forgot for your sacrifice.If at first you don't succeed, then bomb disposal probably isn't for you.
Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to there level and beat you on experience.

My condolences to the family and the department.http://www.odmp.org/officer/16551-de...l-eron-shannon
Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
