Officer Mathew Thebeau was killed in an automobile accident on SH 286 at approximately 2:50 am while responding to an assault-in-progress call.

Officer Thebeau's patrol car struck a concrete wall and straddled the barrier for approximately 50 yards until it impacted an I-beam supporting a highway sign. He was ejected from the patrol car and then struck by another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. He was transported to Spohn Memorial Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Officer Thebeau was a U.S. Navy veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and had served with the Corpus Christi Police Department for almost 2 years. He is survived by his parents and sister.
