Officer attended teen’s graduation after fatal accident

Lieutenant Eric Ellison of the Orange County Police Department in Texas had the difficult assignment of telling 18-year-old Kazzie Portie that his parents died when the motorcycle they were riding was hit by a pickup truck, according to FOX 13 on June 1. As a show of support, Ellison attended the teen’s graduation ceremony a few days later.

According to an interview conducted with Ellison by local news channel KBMT, telling Portie about the tragedy that ended his parents’ lives was one of the hardest things he has ever had to do.

The pickup truck driver who caused the accident is facing two counts of manslaughter.
