Deputy Constable Jennifer Chavis Killed in Car Accident – Houston, Texas

On April 2nd, Deputy Constable Jennifer Chavis of the Harris County Precinct 7 was killed in the line of duty by a drunk driver who caused a fiery crash. Chavis was called down to Beltway 8 to assist in a witness report of a drunk driver near Fondren around 6 pm. A witness was following a suspected drunk driver who failed to stop and give information after causing a car accident. Chavis was waiting on the side of the road for the suspected drunk driver to approach.

The F-550, which is a very large Ford truck, approached Chavis and struck the back of her vehicle. The collision caused her vehicle to burst into flames immediately. The F-550 Driver, Adolfo Serrano (36), was charged with Intoxication Manslaughter of a Peace Officer. Serrano did not suffer any major injuries and was the only occupant of the Ford truck.

Chavis was a member of Precinct 7’s Toll Road Division, an Army veteran, a wife, and mother to a 4-year-old son and 11-year-old nephew she was raising. Being a part of the DWI unit, these officers are making sure that drunk drivers are kept off the streets.
