An off-duty Celina, TX, police officer and his young daughter were killed in a crash involving a garbage truck in Grayson County Monday afternoon, officials said.
The crash happened at around 3:30 p.m. on Highway 567, just east of Whitesboro, CBS DFW reports.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said there were several vehicles eastbound on the road that were stopped for a school bus dropping off students. A garbage truck going eastbound was going over a hill and didn’t stop in time, causing a chain-reaction crash with at least five other vehicles.
Celina city officials later confirmed 33-year-old officer KC Robinson and his 6-year-old daughter, Brynlee, died at the scene of the crash. Robinson was with the department for over three years.
