Sheriff’s Deputy Killed in Collision with Truck

An undercover sheriff's deputy was killed when his SUV was hit by a box truck in Houston. Authorities say Deputy Craig Miller was killed instantly when the truck failed to yield to oncoming traffic.

The truck, driven by Jose Vieyra, allegedly crossed three lanes of traffic after leaving a car dealership when it his Miller's SUV. Vieyra was charged with criminally negligent homicide, but the prosecutor on the case may reconsider the charges. Vieyra is an illegal immigrant who was working on an expired work visa at the time of the accident.

Miller's family may not receive all the benefits they would otherwise have because Miller's toxicology report states his blood alcohol content was .27, more than twice the legal limit. Though Miller's family is disputing the allegation, especially since he never had any problems on the job in his 20 years of service, the case has become more than simply a tragic accident.

However, at heart, this is still a probable case of wrongful death. Authorities state Vieyra's negligence caused Miller's death.

If you have lost a loved one due to driver negligence, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer
