    MOORE, Oklahoma -- Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. D. Heath Meyer, who was struck by a patrol car in a pursuit July 14, died Monday from his injuries, Patrol Chief Ricky Adams said.

    Meyer, who responded to a reported pursuit, had laid stop sticks on Interstate 35 near N 27 in Moore when troopers Rodney Rideaux and Clint Painter came up the interstate in hot pursuit.

    The troopers, attempting to avoid the stop sticks, struck one another. Painter's vehicle then struck Meyer, fatally injuring him. The driver of the fleeing vehicle, Dangelo Ladon Burgess, 28, was taken into custody that night.
