Circumstances of Death: Rammed by Semi Truck
A semi-truck driver, involved in several hit and run accidents, was being pursued through Sedgwick County. As he approached the Butler County line, he encountered a roadblock that had been set up by the Butler County Sheriff’s Department. The driver of the truck ran the roadblock and Deputy Wolf gave chase. Wolf passed the truck hoping to get in front and slow the truck down. The offending vehicle rammed the deputy’s car several times, finally locking bumpers. The truck and patrol car left the road and rammed a house, killing Wolf instantly.
