Harris County, TX – Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Deputy Robert Howard died in the line of duty on Wednesday after he crashed into the back of a parked tractor-trailer.

The 27-year-old deputy was transporting evidence pertaining to a criminal case when he collided with an 18-wheeler parked on the left shoulder of the Tomball Parkway near Spring Cypress Road at approximately 2 p.m. on May 11, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.

“For unknown reasons, our deputy operating the vehicle veered slightly into the inside shoulder of 249, and unfortunately the front driver’s side of our police Tahoe impacted the rear passenger side of the parked semi-trailer,” HCSO Vehicular Crimes Division Lieutenant Simon Cheng told KRIV.

“The deputy sustained serious injuries on scene. Unfortunately, his vehicle after hitting the semi-trailer also bounced into the second-from-inside lane and struck a Chevrolet Silverado,” Lt. Cheng said.
