Detective Elisa Ybarra was killed in an automobile crash when she and two other detectives were en route to Dallas to attend the Crimes Against Children Conference. The detectives encountered slow moving traffic due to a prior vehicle accident on the roadway. A pickup truck then struck the unmarked car causing Detective Ybarra to suffer fatal injuries. The other two detectives were transported to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. Detective Ybarra is the 11th law enforcement officer to be killed in an automobile crash in 2017 and the sixth officer fatality from the state of Texas.
