Deputy Sheriff Brian Pfluger was killed as a result of a vehicle crash at the intersection of SH 150 and Hill Lane, Coldspring, Texas.
Deputy Pfluger was responding to a burglary call and following behind another deputy.
As the deputy in the first patrol car slowed to make a turn, 36-year-old Deputy Pfluger allegedly swerved in an attempt to avoid a rear-end collision but his vehicle clipped the front car and rolled over.
Sadly, Deputy Pfluger was not wearing a seatbelt and as a result of this he was ejected and thrown around 50 feet.
Deputy Pfluger was the son of a retired trooper and has been a sheriff’s deputy for the past four years. He is survived by his wife and a new baby.
Tragically, two sheriff’s deputies were killed in separate crashes on this day, many hundreds of miles apart. To see details of the other officer lost, click here.
