Officer Donovan was killed when she was accidentally struck by a
police cruiser during a foot chase.
At approximately 22:48 hours, Officer Donovan and her partner observed
a suspicious person walking on the 1300 block of Poquito Street.
Officer Donovan got out of the car to talk to the man and he began
running. Officer Donovan began to chase the suspect and her partner
put the patrol car in reverse and tried to block the man's escape
route. During the chase, the patrol car struck Officer Donovan and
pinned her next to a utility pole. She was taken to Brackenridge
Hospital where she died of her injuries at approximately 0200 hours.
The suspect who fled was apprehended later in the week and it was
discovered that he had a parole revocation warrant. After agreeing to
a plea deal, the suspect was sentenced to 4.5 years for drug charges.
An additional charge was never formally filed against the suspect in
court because the prosecuting attorney failed to read the charge
during a hearing.
Officer Donovan had served with the Austin Police Department for 5
months. She is survived by her husband and four children.
