HARLINGEN — A 64-year-old Harlingen woman killed in a car crash with a sheriff’s deputy patrol car Saturday has been identified as Rhonda Taylor Dillon.

Police said her Jeep SUV crashed into the back of a Cameron County Sheriff’s deputy patrol car early Saturday morning while the deputy was stopped at a traffic light at North Business 77 and Loop 499.

The deputy, Miguel Barajas, was in his patrol car facing north at the red light, police said.

“What happened was a white SUV rear-ended the back end, pushing him into the intersection,” Harlingen police Officer Larry Moore said.

“The deputy was transported to the hospital with minor injuries to the head and face.”

Dillon was taken to Valley Baptist Medical Center where she was pronounced dead a short time later.


Gayle Reece:

I know Rhonda had a history of either a stroke or some brain disorder. I imagine that is what happened to cause the crash, as I know she would not have done that intentionally. Very sad.

Rhonda became my friend our first year at John Tyler. We were paired together for our first year on the pep squad for Blue Brigade. We suffered through the summer initiation ritual together and formed a bond because of that. Our "big sisters" had a definite sadistic streak. We didn't keep in touch after graduation except for seeing each other at the reunion. May she rest in peace and her children find comfort.
