Officer Clinton Hunter was struck and killed by a suspect during a vehicle pursuit.

Another officer had observed the suspect vehicle driving erratically southbound on I-35. When he attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver fled and led the officer on a chase. The vehicle exited the highway but re-entered northbound. Officer Hunter was attempting to deploy stop sticks when the driver struck him and his patrol unit.

Officer Hunter was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The driver was also injured in the accident and was taken into custody. The man was sentenced to life as a result of Officer Hunter's death.

Officer Hunter had been employed with the Austin Police Department for just 14 months, and is survived by his wife and 3-year-old daughter.
