Loving County, TX – Loving County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) Deputy Lorin Marie Readmond died in the line of duty on Jan. 29 after an 18-wheeler turned in front of her as she was responding to help a fellow deputy.
The 41-year-old deputy was dispatched to assist another deputy with a traffic stop at approximately 4:30 p.m., KOSA reported.
She was traveling along Highway 302 when a tractor-trailer made a left turn ahead of her, causing a collision with her patrol vehicle.
Deputy Readmond died from her injuries at the scene, KOSA reported.
The driver of the truck was not injured in the crash and has not been charged with any crimes, Texas Department of Public Safety Sergeant Steven Blanco told KSAT.
The investigation into the fatal collision remained ongoing.
Deputy Readmond was a chief petty officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve and served as an intelligence specialist from 2006 until 2018, KOSA reported.
She began working for the LCSO in April of 2019, and was also serving as a reserve deputy with the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office, where she had been since September of 2015.
A police procession escorted Deputy Readmond’s body from Lubbock to a funeral home in Pecos on Monday, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported.
Deputy Readmond leaves behind her mother, sister, and three brothers, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.
