State troopers say a piece of road debris contributed to the crash that killed a Fort Bend County deputy days after Christmas.

Deputy John Norsworthy lost control of his squad car on December 27 of FM 762 and crashed into a tree.

State troopers now say it looks like Norsworthy swerved to avoid the debris from a truck as well as another vehicle then crashed.

Norseworthy died earlier this month in a hospital.
