Austin-Travis county e-m-s is mourning the loss of a 15-year veteran paramedic.
Captain Randy Trinkle was killed in a car crash today, while driving home after the end of his shift.
He most recently served as a training officer, and a member of the special operations team, and Texas task force one.
He lived in Fredericksburg, and also worked occasionally for Fredericksburg e-m-s.
The e-m-s chief spent time with Trinkle's family today, and says the Austin-Travis e-m-s honor guard will be posted at his side beginning tomorrow morning.
Funeral services have not yet been set.
