Breedlove, who was 25 at the time, crashed his Kia Sportage into Givens at a high rate of speed on I-20 in July 2018, while the 32-year police veteran was on his motorcycle escorting the body of a Dallas PD officer who died of cancer.

Givens was transported to Baylor Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
