Sergeant Mark Scianna was killed in an automobile accident at the intersection of Lockhill-Selma and George Roads at 10:34 pm.

He had activated his emergency equipment and attempted to turn onto George Road when his vehicle left the roadway and struck a utility pole. The impact caused Sergeant Scianna to be ejected from the vehicle, which then rolled over and struck a second utility pole.

Dispatchers were alerted to the crash when Sergeant Scianna's emergency button was activated on his portable radio. Bystanders also called 911 to report the crash and attempted to douse the flames with a garden hose until emergency crews arrived. Sergeant Scianna was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sergeant Scianna has served with the Bexar County Precinct 3 Constable's Office for two years. He had previously served with the Castle Hills Police Department for 10 years and the New Britain (Connecticut) Police Department, and had served as an officer for nearly 28 years in total. He is survived by his three sons.

I was on duty when our communications put out an "Emergency Tone" activated on a County Patrol Unit. The dispatch put an address that I immediately recognized as close by. I responded by asking to be "assigned & enroute". As I made my way, the dispatcher kept informing me to use caution as no other units were "close by" and current reports indicated a vehicle crash. As I got close I reported "Fire 1st responder on scene". The crash caused a fire on private property which was extinguished upon my arrival. The crash was vast and violent. The dispatcher kept asking for info regarding the unit, agency or personnel. I located a unit # and forwarded to the dispatcher. I then searched for the veh operator. Fire units had already requested medical First Responders.
Allow me to say that upon discovery of my Fallen Brother- Humility, Respect and Dignity bowed my knee in Thanks for the life of this Noble Servant. Within the field of debris, I sought My Lord & Saviour to pray for the Family of my Brother. I'd never met him, nor seen him. That didn't matter to me, I prayed in supplication; Grateful for the life of this Servant of GOD. Once done, I posted near to him and upon arrival of his Supervisor, I informed him of my actions. I articulated a report for my Sergeant & returned to service.
I haven't forgotten and during the recent ambush in Dallas County I felt compelled to share that part of my life with you. Hoping it may bring Peace & Grace.
Somber sentiments remain as the news continually show terrible videos of events in Dallas. My wife is still crying, GOD Help us.
