Default ARTICLE: Pima deputy, 2 others die after hit by truck

A Pima County sheriff's deputy, a man he was trying to arrest and a good Samaritan trying to help were all killed Wednesday night when the three were struck by an oncoming truck.
The deaths occurred just before 8 p.m., when the deputy was called to a Circle K in response to a 911 caller who reported a "crazed man" at the store, said sheriff's Capt. Rick Kastigar.
Kastigar said the deputy was struggling with the man and managed to place a handcuff on one of his wrists when the man broke free and ran away.
The deputy gave chase, finally catching the suspect in a median, but the two began struggling again.
Kastigar said that's when a man driving by stopped and came to assist the deputy as he struggled with the man.
All three somehow went into the street and were struck by a pickup truck driven by a man in his 60s, Kastigar said.
All three were pronounced dead at the scene.
"This is a dark evening for the Sheriff's Department. We lost one of our own," Kastigar said.
The names of the deputy, the man who tried to help him and the third man had not been released as of late Wednesday.
