    A veteran officer for the Kiefer Police Department was killed early Thursday in a collision near his hometown of Oologah in Rogers County.
    Sgt. Les Wilmott, 54, died at the scene of the crash on U.S. 169 northbound at State Highway 88 shortly after midnight, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol accident report.
    Wilmott's patrol car, a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria, ran into a tractor-trailer rig, troopers reported. The semi's driver, 33-year-old Luis A. Lara of Laredo, Texas, was not injured, nor was his passenger.
    The cause of the collision is unknown, the report stated.
    Wilmott had been in law enforcement for about 30 years, according to the Kiefer Police Web site. He previously served as police chief for Inola and Beggs.
    A former Rogers County deputy, Wilmott lost a bid in 2004 to become sheriff of the county.
