Harris County Texas Sheriff's Deputy Craig Miller was killed in an unfortunate motor vehicle collision on February 21, 2008.
Deputy Miller was on his way to relieve another Deputy conducting surveillance on a suspected criminal activity.
Jose Vieyra, driving a box truck, pulled out onto Katy Freeway in Houston, Texas, in front of Deputy Miller.
Deputy Miller did not attempt to brake as there were no skid marks in his lane; Miller passed away at the scene.
Vieyra was charged with criminally negligent homicide.
Now the Rest of the Story:
- Deputy Miller was not wearing his seat belt,
- Deputy Miller had a .27 blood-alcohol content,
- Vieyra had a valid driver's license at the time of the accident,
- Vieyra had no criminal record,
- Initially Sheriff's Dept. indicated that the .27 would not effect Vieyra's charge,
- Charges against Vieyra, in light of Deputy Miller's .27 bac,were dismissed,
- Vieyra may be deported as his papers had expired.
Harris County is known for its surveillance efforts:
