Precinct 6 Cpl. Jarrell Caldwell said that as the funeral procession moved down Mykawa Street, a vehicle cut through the funeral procession, failing to yield to emergency vehicles. The deputy struck the vehicle as he followed the procession. He was able to stay on his motorcycle, which slid a few feet before stopping.
At this time he has a few cuts and bruises and was transported to the hospital as a precaution. The Houston Police Department is conducting the investigation on this case. Traffic-related charges may be filed.
The deputy's name is being withheld at this time.
