The Round Rock Police Department has identified the officer who was struck by a car and the pedestrian who was killed on Sunday.  

RRPD says 18-year veteran Officer Charles Whites remains in serious condition after he was hit while directing traffic from a separate accident where one person died. Police say they had received reports of a person walking near I-35 and when they arrived they found 25-year-old Amir Azad deceased.  

Whites was then struck by a car near Palm Valley Boulevard while directing traffic around that scene. He was quickly transported to a nearby hospital in serious condition. The driver who hit Whites, Raul Martinez, was arrested for intoxication assault. He was charged and booked into the Williamson County jail. 

Police say they still haven't identified the person who hit Azad and are asking the public to call them if they have any information at 512-218-5515.
