CALDWELL, TX — Funeral services have been arranged for a Blinn College police officer who lost his life earlier this month following a major collision in west Brazos County.

The officer, 46-year-old Christopher Luttrell of Caldwell, had been traveling in a personal vehicle along Texas State 21 on December 17, when a tire on Luttrell’s car burst, causing the vehicle to lose control and collide with an oncoming delivery truck.

The officer leaves behind a legacy of meaningful service with Blinn College law enforcement, as well as the Caldwell Police Department and Burleson County Sheriff’s Office.

“I don’t know that you could ever replace a Chris... an officer like that who cared for his job and cared for the people that he was working for and cared for the people that he served," said Blinn College District Police Chief John Chancellor, who supervised Luttrell. "I don’t know that you can ever replace someone like that.”

Visitation for Luttrell will take place on Monday, December 28 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Strickland Funeral Home of Caldwell. A memorial service is scheduled for the following day, starting at 1 p.m. at the Caldwell Civic Center.
