State Patrol Sgt. Scott Bright said witnesses saw Toney’s patrol car going north on U.S. Highway 65/69 with its top emergency lights lit sometime before 5 p.m.

Two miles south of Indianola, the car hit the shoulder, rolled several times into a field and caught fire. Emergency responders said the car was engulfed when they arrived.
