About Officer Glenn Homs

On July 3, 1993, at 1:28 a.m., Officer Glenn Homs was dispatched to a call of a cow in the roadway westbound State Highway 114, approximately one-half mile east of Belt Line Road. Officer Homs arrived and found the cow had been struck and was dead in the roadway. Homs was standing in the outside lane of SH 114 near the shoulder when a vehicle drove through the flare line and struck him. At 1:37 a.m., a citizen called over the police radio to report the officer lying in the roadway. Officer Homs was found in the center lane approximately 300 feet west of the point of impact. It was reported that the vehicle that struck him fled the scene without stopping. Officer Homs died just over an hour later at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.
