Police in Missouri reported that a deputy was killed when a man believed to be an intoxicated drunk driver struck his motorcycle and died.
Drunk Driver Killed Missouri Deputy
Based on the published report of Fox News, Steven Tucker, a 60-year-old Troy, Missouri, resident who was not on a day off, was riding his Harley-Davidson at 7:25 p.m. On a two-lane, clean road on Saturday, a car traveling quickly crossed the center line and struck the motorcycle, killing the deputy instantly. When the accident happened, it was thought that the driver was under the influence of alcohol. Tucker had only recently begun his employment with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office earlier this year.
The 35-year-old accused drunk driver of the car was also brought right away to the local hospital to obtain treatment for his significant injuries. Police in Missouri have not released the name or any other information about the alleged accident culprit.
The State Highway Patrol of Missouri is looking into it. The sheriff’s office said on Facebook that the car’s driver was intoxicated and cautioned people against driving after drinking.
Last Sunday, July 9, so far no one had been taken into custody.
