Watch: Houston Police Officer was driving at a high rate of speed before crashing into and killing a grandfather who was on his way home from church

Charles Payne, (husband, father, and grandfather) was driving home from church on Sunday afternoon when he was killed by a Houston Police Department patrol car that was headed northbound on N. Shepherd @ Thronton Rd at what appears to be a very high rate of speed shown in the video below:

In the video, you can see the patrol car’s lights did not seem to be turned on. However, authorities said it is too soon to determine if the police officer was responding to a call.

Many questions remain, as the officer will be placed on administrative leave during the investigation. The officer was taken to a nearby hospital for minor injuries but will be released soon.
