Our local paper (The Times and Democrat) is "reporting two deputies that were involved in a collision Tuesday night were en route to join the search for a man who led authorities on a chase." It goes on to describe details of the incident ". . . both were heading west on Highway 94 to aid in the chase and search for Young when troopers say one of the deputies attempted to make a left turn from the right hand lane. Troopers say the deputy was then struck by the second deputy on the left side."
Memories of Deputy Barney Fife come to mind. I wonder if they let the deputies have more than one bullet?
Oh, and I am happy to report that the suspect was found and arrested.
You just cannot make this stuff up.
