Michael Serrano, 27, of Temple, was off duty at the time of the crash, which happened at around 11:40 p.m. Saturday in the 8800 block of West Adams Avenue in Temple.

Visitation will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday at the Dossman Funeral Home at 2525 North Main St. in Belton.

The funeral service is at 10 a.m. Monday at the Dossman Funeral Home Chapel.

Burial will follow at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen.

Serrano is survived by his wife and two sons.

Serrano was the second Bell County Sheriff’s Department employee to die of injuries from a crash this month.

Bell County Deputy Sheriff Adam Davis died on Dec. 11 at Scott & White, 10 days after he suffered head injuries when his patrol unit crashed.

Davis was near the end of his shift when he responded at around 9:15 p.m. on Dec. 1 to a report of a man with a gun near Pendleton.

He lost control of his patrol car on Farm-to-Market- Road 1237 just southwest of the community.

The deputy’s patrol car rolled several times and came to rest in the yard of a home, authorities said.

Davis was flown to Scott & White Hospital, in Temple, where he remained in critical condition and on life support until his death.

The call to which he was responding was unfounded, authorities later said.
