The highways of this country have a sort of unflinchingly democratic nature to them. They spare no one. Everyone is at risk of being injured or killed in a car accident. No matter how experienced, how skilled or how knowledgeable of the risks, we all can find ourselves in a position that risks life and limb. A tragic story concerning two off-duty Pasadena, Texas police officers exemplifies this.
The two officers were members of the Pasadena force and had experience that included "SWAT scenes, undercover narcotics cases and on patrol." Unlike many police officers who die in fatal motor vehicle accidents while on duty, these two men were off-duty and had been enjoying a day of hunting in the Texas Hill country, when they stopped to be good Samaritans.
