Plea deal reached in case against woman who crashed into APD motorcycle officer

News

AUSTIN (KXAN) — In September of 2016, Officer Amir Abdul-Khaliq, 46, was on his motorcycle on Burnet Road when he was struck by a driver who turned in front of him.

Police say there was a gap during a funeral procession and the driver, Ana Prado told police she thought she could make it in time.

Officer Abdul-Khaliq died from his injuries several days later. Prado was charged with driving with an invalid license.

The prosecutor on the case tells KXAN Prado agreed to spend 120 days in jail and 18 months on probation. She’d have to pay a $2,000 fee if she violates the terms of that probation, which includes driving without a license or insurance.

She’ll have to complete 30 hours of community service.

The prosecutor said APD examined the case thoroughly and it appeared to be a “tragic accident.” They didn’t find evidence of any other crime, the prosecutor said.
