D. Robert Martin Harvey

Deputy Robert Harvey was killed in an automobile accident on CR 2500, at East 88th Street, while responding to a fight in progress call.

The driver of a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction attempted to make a left turn in front of Deputy Harvey's patrol car, and caused a head-on collision.

Deputy Harvey was trapped in his patrol car as it became engulfed in flames. The two occupants of the other vehicle were injured in the crash.

Deputy Harvey joined the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office on his birthday, October 7, 2001. A member of the Texas Tactical Peace Officers Association, Harvey still made time to volunteer as a little league coach. His wife and two sons survive him.
