Corrections Officers Christopher Davis and Eligio Garcia were killed in a prison bus crash on I-20 near Penwell, Texas, at approximately 7:30 am.

The bus was transporting 10 inmates from a transfer facility in Abilene to the Rogelio Sanchez State Jail in El Paso. The vehicle struck a patch of ice on an overpass, causing it to slide off the highway and down an embankment. The bus then struck a passing train and was dragged along the tracks, breaking apart.

Officers Davis and Garcia, along with eight inmates, suffered fatal injuries at the scene. One other officer and four other inmates were transported to hospitals in critical condition.

Officer Davis had served with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for 17 years.

Chris and I were co workers before he became a Corrections Officer, we worked together in machine shop in Abilene. He was a major influence in my life, a good descent man. We became good friends of those several years. I will never forget how he help me through some tough times , and I was there for him as well when he was going through a rough patch. I was there the day he put his trust in Jesus Christ. I't broke my heart the day I heard of his passing...
