CHATTANOOGA, Okla. (AP) — The police chief in the small southwestern Oklahoma town of Chattanooga has been killed in a motorcycle accident.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 60-year-old Tommy Reed died after the motorcycle he was riding veered off state Highway 36. Troopers say Reed was thrown from the motorcycle in the Sunday evening accident.
Reed was the only police officer in the town of about 460 in southwestern Comanche County. County Sheriff Kenny Stradley said his office will provide law enforcement for the town.
Reed’s survivors include his wife — Mary — two daughters and a grandchild.
