A Texas police officer will be laid to rest in Albany today.
28-year-old Edrees Mukhtar was born in Afghanistan and moved to Cohoes.
He graduated from UAlbany before moving to Texas.
San Antonio news reports say Mukhtar's patrol car lost control on a wet surface.
The car hit a curb, skidded sideways, and then collided head-on with a pickup truck.
Mukhtar will be laid to rest at Evergreen Cemetery on Central Avenue in Albany this afternoon.
A prayer service will be held on Sunday at the mosque on Brandywine Avenue in Schenectady.
