GUTHRIE — An Oklahoma deputy struck and killed a Nebraska man with his patrol car while responding to a report of a vehicle going south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 35 near Guthrie.
The names of the man and the deputy were not immediately released.
Logan County Chief Deputy Richard Stephens told The Oklahoman that the Nebraska man was helping relatives move and was driving to Nebraska when items fell from the back of his pickup truck early Saturday. Stephens says the truck was being driven south in the interstate's median as the man used its headlights to search for the items.
Stephens says the deputy didn't see the man because of the headlights shining in his eyes.
The deputy suffered broken ribs and a broken collarbone in the crash.
