Funeral services will be held today for Lt. Clay Crabb with the Austin Police Department, who was killed on his way to work Wednesday.
The lieutenant lost control of his car on Highway 290 near Dripping Springs. The roads were slick due to rainfall, but it's unclear if weather was a factor in the crash.
Chief Art Acevedo said he was in the line of duty at the time of his death.
The funeral begins at 10 a.m. at the Bannockburn Baptist Church.
Interment will immediately follow at Cook Walden Forest Oaks. The city of Austin is expected to cover the costs of the funeral.
