Deputy Sheriff Reginald Norwood was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver while assisting at the scene of a major accident on U.S. Highway 59 near the Greens Road exit.

Deputy Norwood was en route to work when he encountered a five-car accident. After assisting two victims he began running towards an overturned tractor trailer. Another vehicle, whose driver ignored other officers' orders to stop, drove around the accident scene onto the median. As the vehicle re-entered the roadway it struck Deputy Norwood.

The driver fled the scene but turned himself in the following day.
