Suspected drunken driver charged

The Houston Chronicle is reporting; 38-year-old Kevin Will;  an officer with the Houston Police Department was collecting details of a hit-and-run accident along Loop 610 North when, police say, a driver, apparently drunk, ignored the flashing lights of patrol cars, steered his Volkswagen around a makeshift barrier set up to block the freeway, and slammed into Will, killing him at the scene.

The officer leaves behind a pregnant wife and two stepchildren, a 10-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl.

"Officer Will and other witnesses at the scene who were inside the barriers had no expectation that someone would drive around that or drive through that," said Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland.
