The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash happened around 8:30 p.m. Sunday when the suspect failed to stop for a red light and struck a Dodge Dakota, which then hit the Pettis County deputy’s sport utility vehicle. The patrol says the Dakota’s driver, 27-year-old Zachary Hancock Bottom, was ejected.

He was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The patrol says in a tweet that the deputy is OK.
