Another officer in critical condition
A Pasadena police officer was killed and another reportedly lost his leg after being hit by an 18-wheeler near Kerrville Friday night.
Authorities say two police officers were on a hunting trip and stopped to help some people whose trailer had come unhitched along Interstate-10 northwest of San Antonio. A trucker swerved to avoid some road debris, went onto the shoulder, and hit both officers.
Veteran officer Larry Candaleri, 49, died at the scene. The second officer, 49 year old Michael Huffman, was flown to a San Antonio hospital and is listed in critical condition. There is no word on other injuries, and Texas DPS has the case.
Accounts have been set up at Amegy Bank and Wells Fargo to help the families of the two officers. Blood donations in the name of Officer Huffman can also be made at the Gulf Coast Blood Center.
