GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -

A pedestrian walking on Interstate 35 near Guthrie was killed after being hit by a Logan County Sheriff's deputy's vehicle early Saturday morning.

According to Logan County Sheriff Rich Stevens, just after 12:30 a.m., Deputy Mark Hanneman of Edmond was responding to the report of a vehicle facing south in the northbound lanes near mile marker 159 on Interstate 35 near Guthrie.

As the deputy arrived at the scene, authorities say he did not see a man walking in the northbound inside lane of I-35 highway, due to bright headlights from that vehicle.

The deputy's car hit the man, causing him to go through the deputy's windshield. The man's body then hit the deputy before being ejected from the car.

The man, later identified as 46-year-old Danny Lundy, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputy Hanneman was transported to an Edmond hospital to be treated for broken ribs and face lacerations. He was released from the hospital several hours later.

According to the Sheriff's Office, Lundy was traveling back to Nebraska with family members from the Kingfisher area. The family believed that they had lost part of the load from their truck bed. They were using the lights from the vehicle to illuminate the area as they looked for their property.

Lundy was walking along the median and inside lane looking for the property when he was struck, family members said.

Troopers listed the cause of the crash as "pedestrian action" in the Oklahoma Highway Patrol collision report.
