Okla. Deputy Killed in Collision with Tribal Officer

Both officers were responding to a "shots fired" call when their cruisers collided


Friday, April 20, 2012

SOPER, Okla. (AP) — A Choctaw County deputy has been killed and a Choctaw Nation tribal officer injured in a two-car collision on U.S. Highway 70 near Soper in southeastern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 47-year-old deputy Brian Hayden of Sawyer was dead on arrival at a hospital in Hugo following the crash just before 8:30 p.m. Thursday. The OHP says 29-year-old tribal officer Josiah Moore is hospitalized in stable condition following the collision.

Troopers say both were westbound with lights and sirens activated to assist another deputy when Hayden turned left onto a county road and Moore swerved left and crashed into the driver side door of Hayden's truck.

The reason for the two responding to the other deputy has not been released.
