Texas cop succumbs to injuries following crash

As you remember these fallen officers, take comfort in recalling that they dedicated their lives to the same principles of honor, duty and courage that brought you to the badge. Such a life is truly rich. Take strength in knowing that when an officer falls, our resolve to serve those in need is not diminished. Our dedication to protecting those in danger is not weakened. Our commitment to remembering those with whom we shared the badge does not fade.

Godspeed, brothers and sisters. You fought the good fight. Now rest in peace…

BELL COUNTY, Texas — A Bell County Sheriff’s Deputy died Wednesday morning from injuries sustained in a rollover accident earlier this month.

Adam Davis, 36, was responding to reports of a man displaying a gun in public when he crashed his cruiser, according to KWKT.

He suffered severe head injuries and was taken off a respirator 10 days after the accident.

“Adam enjoyed serving the public," said Sheriff Eddy Lange. "It wasn’t about writing tickets or putting people in jail. That’s not what he wanted to do. He wanted to serve his fellow citizens, and he did that very well. And he made the final sacrifice doing exactly that.”

Davis had served with the Bell County Sheriff's Office for six years and had previously served with the Troy Police Department and Rogers Police Department, according to ODMP.
