Okla. patrol identifies 2 officers killed in crash

DILL CITY, Okla. (AP) _ The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has released the names of the two law enforcement officers killed when their cars collided during a police pursuit in western Oklahoma.

The patrol says Burns Flat police officer Kristian Willhight died in the collision along with Washita County Undersheriff Brian Beck. Authorities say Beck was attempting to serve a suspect with a felony warrant about 9:40 a.m. Thursday in Sentinel when the person fled in a car.

Investigators believe the suspect, who the patrol identified as Quentin Lee Johnson, crashed about 30 minutes later near Dill City and died. A short time later, Beck and Willhight collided and both were killed in that crash.

The crash remains under investigation and authorities have not yet said what led to the collision.
