Corporal Keith Crenshaw was struck and killed by a vehicle while deploying a spike strip during a vehicle pursuit on U.S. Highway 82, at the exit to Mississippi 9.

Three subjects in the vehicle were wanted in connection with multiple attempted robberies earlier in the morning and led officers on a high speed chase across three counties. Corporal Crenshaw deployed the spike strip at approximately 10:00 a.m. as the chase entered Eupora. As the subjects approached they swerved into the median, fatally striking Corporal Crenshaw. The vehicle then crashed into a utility pole.

One subject was killed in the wreck and two others were taken into custody.

Corporal Crenshaw had served with the Eupora Police Department for 10 years. He is survived by his six children and five grandchildren.
