Deputy Busby was killed in an automobile accident while he and another deputy were returning to Houston after transporting a prisoner to Rusk State Hospital. A delivery truck pulled onto Highway 69 in front of them. The other deputy lost control of the vehicle and drove into a ditch. Deputy Busby was ejected from the car and sustained fatal injuries.

Deputy Busby was one of the first two black deputies hired by Harris County. He had been with the agency for just under three years.
