Officials charge a man they say is responsible for the overnight death of a sheriff’s deputy.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputy was killed as he entered the Katy Freeway near Mason Road. Investigators say the driver of a box truck, Jose Jesus Vieyra pulled out of a private driveway and struck the deputy’s vehicle, causing it to over turn.
Deputies say the victim was on-duty in an unmarked vehicle at the time of his death. His name is being withheld pending notification of his family.
