LAWMEN KILLED IN PURS_Hass(1).jpg

The vehicle driven by a Burns Flat police officer is removed from the crash site as two OHP investigators gather information, Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, near Dill City, Okla. A Burns Flat police officer and an undersheriff for the Washita County Sheriff's Department died in a car crash at a rural intersection about one mile south of Dill City. According to OHP spokesman, the lawmen became involved in a high-speed pursuit when a Washita County man fled as the undersheriff approached him to serve a felony warrant. That same suspect died about the same time in another crash about three miles east of the location where the law officers collided. Dill City is located 75 miles west of Oklahoma City.
