Not that any of you need a reason to refrain from exposing yourselves in a Whataburger drive thru, but if you’ve been on the fence about it, perhaps knowing that you won’t be fatally exposed to a great big truck while running away if you don’t might swing your vote.
When the officer arrived, the man took off on foot, running across I-10.
Police say he made it across the westbound lanes, but was hit by an 18-wheeler in the eastbound lanes.
The officer did not pursue the suspect, as HPD policy is to not run across a freeway.
I feel like that’s probably good policy in general.
