Ex-Officer Killed in Accident
Kevin worked with me here for several years before he had an opportunity to work in a family business in Oklahoma. He was one of the best officers i've known and just a very good person. He was a very strong quiet Christian. Although I hadn't heard from him in quite a while, he will be missed. Y'all keep his family, especially his wife and kids, in your prayers, please.
School bus accident on U.S. 75 kills car driver
The Caney Valley Superintendent says the bus driver was headed west on County Road 4000 crossing Highway 75 when the bus was hit by a car.
12-year-old Jeremy Shirey was one of the two passengers on the school bus and recalls what happened, "I see this car coming toward us, and then it swerves and then I feel it hit the bumper and then our bus swerves out," said Jeremy.
Jeremy went to the hospital, along with the only other student on the bus.
"I got staples, a mild concussion and a few cuts on my ear," said Jeremy.
The driver of the car, 42-year-old Kevin Schexnayder of Owasso, died by the time he arrived at the hospital.
Highway Patrol Trooper Eric Pitner said fog was to blame.
"In this kind of weather you have to slow down. You're reaction time is slow in fog because you can't see anything," said Pitner.
In fact, the fog was so bad, the bus driver had the students help him keep an eye and ear on the road.
"He had his windows down and the students had their windows down to see if they could hear any traffic," said Caney Valley Superintendent Jim Knox.
Jeremy didn't go to school Thursday, but did learn a valuable lesson about driving in fog.
"Go slower. Keep your lights on, just pay attention," said Jeremy.
He's glad to be home from the hospital and is thankful he wasn't seriously hurt.
"I'm just glad I'm here," said Jeremy.
The superintendent says as apart of standard procedure, the bus driver was drug tested.
The bus driver was not hurt.
The Highway Patrol says it's up to the District Attorney's Office to determine who, if anyone, was at fault.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

The Land Rover we picked up for my wife has rear facing fog lights - it seems like something we could use here in the US, too.I'm your huckleberry...

Rest in peace , Kevin. Thanks for your years of service. Condolences to family and friends, especially you, Cipd24.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

My condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the fallen.
Fog is a weather condition not to be messed with. Treat it with respect. Keep your eyes and ears open and your speed down. The San Joaquin Valley in CA where I live gets socked in every winter. We have a lot of rivers in this valley. It seems that at least once a year there is a tragic pile up on Interstate 5 or CA 99 somewhere in the valley.
Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
