|Death: ||Sep. 3, 1985|
On Tuesday, September 3, 1985, Deputy Reginald "Rocky" Norwood was on his way to work when he drove up on a five car major accident in the 15700 block of the Eastex Freeway. Deputy Norwood parked his car on the Greens Road off-ramp and proceeded to assist in tending to the injured and traffic control. After helping two of the injured, Deputy Norwood began to run toward an overturned tractor-trailer which had victims trapped inside. A vehicle, ignoring officers that were directing traffic, drove through the center grassy median around the accident. As the vehicle reentered the roadway, it struck Deputy Norwood killing him instantly. The driver of the vehicle left the scene but turned himself in to sheriff's investigators the next day. Deputy Rocky Norwood was 27 years old.
