An investigation is under way after a woman was killed Friday in a collision involving an off-duty Fort Worth police officer in the 3800 block of Columbus Trail, police said.

At about 2:30 a.m. Officer Jesus Cisneros, 37, was driving westbound in an unmarked police vehicle when he collided with Sonia
Baker's southbound Chrysler PT Cruiser as she attempted an eastbound turn in front of his vehicle, police said.

The 27-year-old woman died in the crash and Cisneros was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in serious condition, police said.

Baker, a wife and mother of two boys ages 4 and 5, was on her way to pick up breakfast before heading into work, her family said.

Investigators said alcohol may have been involved on the part of the off-duty officer, but test results have not been returned.

Cisneros has been an officer with the Fort Worth Police Department since September 2001.

"This is a tragic incident and a very, very serious matter. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families," Lt. Paul Henderson said in a statement released Friday.
