Off-duty deputy strikes and kills 2 women with car

CONROE (AP)— Two young women trying to cross Interstate 45 after their car crashed into a median early Tuesday were struck and killed by a Montgomery County sheriff's deputy on his way home.Kelsey Vogel, 20, of Panorama Village, and Danielle Irvin, 20, of Willis, likely were on their way home, too, when they were hit just north of FM 3083, family members said. The women died at the scene.

"At this point, there is nothing to indicate that the accident could have been avoided, " Conroe police Sgt. Bob Berry said. ''It was dark and the women were in the middle of the road."
Montgomery County Sheriff's Deputy Alan Hunter, whose patrol car struck the women shortly after 2 a.m., was taken to Conroe Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for minor injuries and released, sheriff's spokesman Lt. Dan Norris said.

According to investigators, the women were northbound in the 3200 block of I-45 when Vogel's Ford Escape crashed into a concrete median.A witness told police that the women had passed him at a high rate of speed shortly before their car hit the median. The witness, whose name was not released, called Conroe police for help.

Berry said the two women got out of the car and began walking south along the median before attempting to cross the northbound lanes of the highway. They were in the middle of the road when they were struck by Hunter's car.The eight-year veteran deputy was on his way home from work and was not responding to the call, Norris said. Hunter, 40, of Huntsville, had turned off his computer and radio, authorities said.
