In 2007, a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy was driving home from a night shift when two impaired, teenaged girls who had wrecked on the highway ran out from behind an 18-wheeler on Interstate 45. The officer hit the young women, and they were killed.
“I didn’t remember the incident, and I was real hard on myself because I thought I would feel worse than I did,” said Alan H. “I didn’t have as much guilt as I thought I should have. There was no way to avoid it (the accident). I was going 62 mph, below the speed limit. There was nothing I could have done.”
