Former Waco Police Officer killed in crash near Austin

LAKEWAY, TX (KXXV) -

A former Waco Police Officer was killed after wrecking his truck while he was on his way to work on Thursday.

47-year-old Chris Doles worked for the Waco Police Department for 19 years. Thursday would have been Doles' two year anniversary with Lakeway Police Department.

Austin PD says Doles' truck hit a utility pole after his truck crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with another truck. He was thrown from the truck and died at the scene.

Doles leaves behind a wife and 5 children. Services have not been planned, but the Lakeway Police Department plans to give Doles full honors as if he was killed in the line of duty.

The other driver involved in the crash was not injured.
