Trooper Billy Zachary was struck and killed by the driver of a vehicle while making a traffic stop of two vehicles on I-20, near Monahans, Texas.

He was returning to his patrol car after speaking to one of the drivers when a third vehicle veered from the travel lane and struck him. He was struck as he returned to his patrol car after speaking with the driver in the car that pulled over behind him.

Trooper Zachary had served with the Texas Department of Public Safety for just over one year. He is survived by his wife, 3-month-old daughter, parents, and sister.

In June 2017 a section of I-20 was designated as the Trooper Billy Jack Zachary Memorial Highway.
