Trooper Todd Holmes

A state highway patrol trooper was killed late Wednesday when his patrol car was struck by a tractor-trailer in East Texas, officials said.
Todd Holmes, 29, had crossed the median of U.S. 59 to pursue a vehicle when he was broadsided by the 18-wheeler, said Lisa Block, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman.
Block said a DPS accident reconstruction team was investigating the crash, which occurred in Harrison County just north of Marshall.
There were no other injuries.
Holmes, who was stationed in Gilmer, was married and had three young children, Block said.
BS Ranch Perspective:
Looks like another terrible day in the life of a law enforcement Officer in Texas. I don't know Todd Holmes personally However it is terrible when any of our massive Law Enforcement's Fine Blue Line, gets weakened in any way. I pray and pay my respects to the loss to the Department, and the Family of Officer Holmes. God Speed my friend. God Speed.
