Houston, TX — There was an accident along the I-610 Loop in Houston on Saturday morning, June 13, 2015. Police said that it took place around 10:30 a.m. that morning and identified one of their own, off-duty officers as the victim. They said that Officer Myles Burton was helping with a funeral procession when he was hit by another car.
This happened in the southbound lanes, close to Bellaire Blvd.
Burton was apparently working with four other off-duty HPD officers and were escorting some cars down the freeway for a funeral when one of the cars accidentally swerved into Burton’s motorcycle.
The roads were already slick with rain and Burton’s bike skidded down the highway. He was rushed to a hospital, but his injuries were not considered serious. The driver that hit him, however, was given a ticket despite being in a funeral procession.
The update was for honorable deputy Kyssi Andrews, who died on Sunday.
