A Rio Grande Valley police officer and local journalist Bob Price were involved in a rollover crash while on the job in Brooks County on Saturday night.
Daniel Walden, who works for Donna ISD as a police officer, was involved in the rollover while volunteering with the Brooks County Sheriff’s Department.
Walden, along with reporter Bob Price with Breitbart Texas, were traveling in a sheriff’s department issued vehicle when water on the road caused them to lose control of the SUV.
They flipped over as the reserve deputy was headed towards Hidalgo County in response to reports of an overturned 18-wheeler.
Walden said that Good Samaritans came to their aid as the vehicle ended up on its side near Farm to Market 755.
He said he is thankful they are alive even though the vehicle they were in was totaled during the crash.
The two were taken to the hospital and released on the same day of the rollover accident.
The Donna ISD officer said the accident will not stop him from doing what he loves to do, and he will continue to serve as a reserve deputy and an officer.
Price told Breitbart Texas that he credits Walden’s response as part of the reason they were not severely injured.
Brooks County only has four deputies covering a total of 900 square miles, so Walden provides assistance as part of a reserve deputy program.
His group of volunteers call themselves the Border Brotherhood of Texas.
