Officer Patrick Sirois was struck and killed by a vehicle on U.S. 69 in McIntosh County, Oklahoma, while assisting at the scene of another accident.
Officer Sirois was traveling to Wagoner, Oklahoma, with his fiancee for the Thanksgiving holiday when he witnessed the accident.

As he spoke to the man on the shoulder he saw another car that about to collide with the vehicle.
