 Bell County Deputy Constable Jeffrey Radford, 69, died hours after a two-vehicle car crash on Wednesday night. 

According to Temple Police, the collision occurred at the intersection of Lucius McCelvey Dr. and N.E. HK Dodgen Loop before 7 p.m. It involved a grey Ford SUV and a Deputy Constable’s vehicle from the Bell County precinct 3 Constable’s Office.

Radford was transported to Baylor Scott & White in Temple in critical condition where he later died. The two occupants of the SUV were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Bell County Constable for Precinct 3 Thomas Prado said Radford had been with the department for two years. According to Prado, he was on his way back from serving someone's papers in Troy when the two cars collided. 

"Please keep Deputy Radford 's family and the members of precinct 3 Constable's Office in your thoughts and prayers," said Temple Police Cpl. Christopher Wilcox.

Authorities are not sure what caused the accident or who is at fault. The crash remains under investigation.
