Captain Jerry Foster succumbed to injuries received three days earlier when he was struck by a car while directing traffic at the scene of an accident at Beltway 8 and Highway 59.

The driver of a van attempted to drive around the stopped cars. When he saw the officers he slammed on the brakes and went into a spin, striking Captain Foster and causing severe head injuries. Captain Foster was transported to Ben Taub Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Captain Foster had been employed with the Harris County Constable's Office for 23 years. He is survived by his wife, daughter, son, brother, and sister.

Jerry, last Thursday I attended the annual memorial service conducted by Chief Randy Johnson and the Toll Road authorities every year to honor deputies who have died in the line of duty while serving on the Toll Roads of Harris County.
You have been on my mind since that service. You are still missed here at Precinct 5 and your memory and stories of your work still abound.
