Officer Lisa Beaulieu was struck and killed by a drunk driver while investigating an earlier accident on the Eastex Freeway shortly before 1:00 am.

Another vehicle had stopped behind Officer Beaulieu's patrol car, which was positioned in the right travel lane. She approached the vehicle from the passenger side to speak to the occupants. As she was speaking with the occupants, a drunken driver drove up to the scene and swerved onto the shoulder, drove in between the vehicle and guardrail, and struck her.

Officer Beaulieu was thrown over the wall of the overpass and landed on the service road below. The drunk driver was taken into custody at the scene and subsequently charged with intoxication manslaughter. He was convicted of the charges and sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Officer Beaulieu had served as a police officer with the agency for 6 years and had previously served as a dispatcher for 4 years. She is survived by her parents, brother, and sister.

On this day ten years ago Officer Lisa Beaulieu’s life was taken by a thoughtless, selfish and worthless man who thought drinking and driving was a good idea. It wasn’t a good idea and never is! This breathtaking young woman, so full of life and possibilities, was taken from us, but her legacy lives on in those whose lives she touched. God bless you Officer Beaulieu and thank you for your service and sacrifice.
