MOSES LAKE, Wash. —

The driver who struck and killed a man last week in Moses Lake was an off-duty police officer.

The Washington State Patrol is investigating the Halloween night fatality, but Police Chief Dean Mitchell told the Columbia Basin Herald (http://is.gd/TJc2q5) there's no indication Officer R.C. Sheats did anything wrong. Mitchell calls it an unfortunate accident.

The patrol reports 47-year-old Gary C. Kilpatrick of Moses Lake was fatally injured when he ran into traffic in front of Sheats' personal vehicle. The 25-year-old has been on the Moses Lake police force for about a year.
