Officer Dwayne Freeto was killed when his patrol car was struck from behind while he was assisting a motorist with a flat tire on I-35 at 3:50 am.

The patrol car burst into flames upon impact, trapping him inside. An off duty detective who witnessed the crash attempted to free Officer Freeto from the wreckage.

The driver of the car that caused the crash, who had a BAC twice the legal limit, was transported to a local hospital in critical condition with severe burns. He was later charged and convicted of intoxicated manslaughter. He was subsequently sentenced to 13 years in prison.

Officer Freeto was a United States Army veteran. He had served with the Fort Worth Police Department for only 9 months and was assigned to the South Division – Neighborhood Policing District #8.

He is survived by his wife, two daughters, parents, and brother.
