A Kendall County Sheriff's Deputy was killed today when he was struck by a pickup as he was conducting a routine traffic stop on I-10 west of Boerne.
Sheriff Al Auxier identified the deputy as Carlos Ramirez, who had been with the sheriff's department since December, 2016. He leaves behind a wife and two young children.
The incident caused I-10 to be closed for several hours from just outside Boerne all the way to the Waring exit, with traffic moved to the access road.
Officials didn't say whether the pickup truck driver will face criminal charges. A second deputy who was also involved in the traffic stop was injured.
