REEVES COUNTY, TEXAS — Reeves County deputy was killed in a rollover early Sunday morning.

Pecos resident and deputy Jacob Rene Rayos, 32, was attempting to locate a suspect vehicle around 3 a.m. He was traveling west on the south service road of Interstate 20 about a quarter mile east of Highway 17 in a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria deputy vehicle. Texas Department of Public Safety records indicate Rayos was traveling at a high rate of speed and was unable to make it around a curve in the road. The vehicle went into a right broadside skid and rolled several times before coming to a rest upright on all four wheels.

Rayos, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene, according to DPS reports.
