Suspect: Colby Ray Williamson

A Hutto police officer has died after being struck with a car while attempting to arrest a suspect.

37-year-old Sgt. Christopher Kelley was killed in the line of duty Wednesday morning.

The Department of Public Safety says the suspect, Colby Ray Williamson, has been charged for his death.

Hutto police tried to make a traffic stop at Herrera Trail but Williamson sped away.

Williamson's car struck a curb, spun out, and hit a fire hydrant. That's when Williamson ran away.

Williamson is in the Williamson county jail. He is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public servant.
