CREATED Sep. 21, 2013
GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say 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.
An Oklahoma Highway Patrol report says 46-year-old Danny Lundy of Nemahah, Neb., was killed about 12:30 a.m. Saturday after being hit by the car driven by Logan County Deputy Mark Hanneman.
Logan County Chief Deputy Richard Stephens told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/19nUo5x ) that items fell from the back of Lundy's pickup truck and the truck was being driven south in the interstate median as Lundy used its headlights to search for the items.
Stephens says the deputy didn't see Lundy because of the headlights shining in his eyes.
Hanneman suffered a broken collarbone and ribs in the crash.
