Texas officer dies in Oklahoma vehicle accident

EUFAULA, Ok The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 50-year-old Patrick Sirois of Killeen, Texas, died in the accident about 7:50 p.m. Tuesday night about one mile north of Eufaula in McIntosh County.

Troopers say a car driven by 17-year-old Beonce Hobson of Checotah was southbound at an unsafe speed when it hit a disabled pickup that was partially in the roadway. They say the impact moved the pickup, pinning Sirois between it and a guardrail. Troopers say he was wearing a reflective traffic vest and had his badge and firearm visible at the time of the accident.

Sirois was pronounced dead at a Eufaula hospital. No one else suffered injuries in the accident.
