Sheriff Reaves was killed in a single vehicle accident as he was returning from a court case in Gonzales. As his vehicle crossed an icy bridge it spun out of control and off an embankment, flipping over several times. Sheriff Reaves was thrown from the vehicle and killed instantly. His passenger was slightly injured.

Sheriff Reaves had been with the agency for two years and was survived by his wife.
