Texas Deputy Constable Hit, Killed by Car

October 04, 2007  | 

A Texas motor officer has died after being hit by a car Monday morning.

An official investigation says that Harris County Dep. Constable Jason Norling, 38, stopped a driver for a traffic violation on the Westpark Tollway at about 10:20 a.m.

Police say Norling had parked his motorcycle directly behind the stopped vehicle. He was standing at the stopped vehicle’s window giving back the violator’s license, when an SUV struck his motorcycle and then hit him.

Norling was rushed to the hospital, but his injuries were too severe, and he died two hours after the accident.

The driver, who stopped at the scene, faces charges of failure to move over a lane for a stopped police officer under a new Texas law that requires motorist to do so for stopped emergency vehicles. The charges could be upgraded to negligent homicide.

The driver already has a defense attorney and here's the toro caca. First he was on a cell phone, then he was on the cell phone and swatting at a fly/mosquito, then the phone and the flying insect had nothing to do with it. The problem was actually that the driver had been rear ended earlier in the day and may have possibly been suffering from a concussion or that the damage to his vehicle may have contributed to the killing of this deputy. Anyway you look at it, Jason, a truly good and decent man as well as a peace officer is gone, may he rest in peace. We all know what we think about defense attorneys.

another member of the brotherhood dies because a "driver" can't pay attention and excuses are alreadybeing made. We just went through this with a ZOfficer in my Dept. but luckily he wasn't killed. Driver swerved all the way into the median and struck Officer Reed. Then he had the gall to be upset he received citations. I cant understand them.
