Officer Jeff McCoy was killed when his patrol car was struck by a drunk driver just before dawn.

An oncoming car crossed into his lane and crashed into the driver's side of his patrol car. The impact shoved the patrol car into a utility pole, killing Officer McCoy. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to Hendrick Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. He was later charged and convicted of intoxicated manslaughter and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Officer McCoy was a member of the Abilene Police Department for 18 years. He is survived by his wife, two-year-old daughter, parents, and brother.
