Houston PD Officer Kevin Will
Police Officer Kevin Will was struck and killed by a drunk driver as he investigated a hit-and-run accident involving a motorcyclist on the North Loop at approximately 3:15 am.
Officer Will was interviewing a witness to the motorcycle accident when the drunk driver drove around barriers and emergency vehicles that were blocking the closed freeway. Seeing the vehicle approach, Officer Will warned the witness to jump out of the way. The citizen was able to jump to safety moments before Officer Will was struck and killed.
The driver was taken into custody at the scene and faces charges in connection with Officer Will's death.
Officer Will had served with the Houston Police Department for almost two years. He is survived by his expectant wife and two children
ADD: Driver is in country illegally. ICE is involved and working with HPD on the driver.
Rest In Peace my Brother. May God grant you eternal rest and may He also look over your family and grant them peace now, in their most extreme moment of sorrow.
What is it about flares, barriers, and blinking lights that invite people to drive around them? I've seen SOBER people do it and one almost killed me on a fatal vehicle crash investigation. Nothing will teach you the depths of human stupidity faster, than closing a road or directing traffic. This was a completely senseless loss of life. :frusty: :mad2:
A true hero however, for sacrificing himself to save the citizen he was with.
Rest in peace brother.
They just released the blood test results. Over three times the limit.
Be extra careful this weekend
