Houston police cruiser hits and kills bicyclist, captured on dashcam

Published

on

HOUSTON Houston police are currently investigating a crash involving a police cruiser that left a bicyclist dead Tuesday night.

The incident occurred in the 6900 block of North Wayside Drive just after 9 p.m. when the HPD vehicle struck and killed a bicyclist trying to cross the street.







Though police have not officially identified the victim, Click 2 Houston says the victim’s family members identified him as 29-year-old Dwayne Foreman.

HPD Assistant Chief Henry Gaw says the officers in the vehicle were responding to a “priority 2” suicide call.

Though a priority 2 calls for a rapid response, the officers hadn’t activated the cruiser’s lights or sirens upon receiving the call.







Gaw says the speed limit in the area was around 35 or 45 mph and the area where the crash occurred appeared to be dimly lit.

A nearby witness, Dante, captured the incident on his dashboard camera.







According to Click 2 Houston, Dante believes the cruiser was going roughly 70 mph.

“This one officer, he was going so fast,” Dante said. “He had to be going about 70, and he hit the young man on the bicycle. From how the accident happened and the way he hit him, it’s just no way he could’ve seen him.”

Dante’s dashcam also captured the officers turning on the cruiser’s lights after the crash occurred.

Gaw says that this is a “tragic accident” and the department’s vehicular crimes unit is investigating the incident.

“If the officers were at fault… they will be held accountable,” Gaw said.

This is an ongoing investigation and Texas Breaking News will update you once more information is available.
