Oklahoma law enforcement agencies are mourning the loss of two Pottawatomie County sheriff deputies killed in a vehicle collision Friday.
Deputies Mike Roberts, 45, and Tim Lowry, 56, were serving warrants when they collided with a tractor-trailer on State Highway 39, officials said. The accident is still under investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Funeral arrangements for the deputies were announced Sunday.
Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth praised both men.
“They’ve been around for a long time and they’ve done a lot of a great work,” Booth said.
“It’s a huge loss for these families, and it’s a huge loss for this county and law enforcement in general.”
Some state law enforcement agencies have been using Facebook since the crash to post about the deputies and send prayers to their families.
