ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A late-night encounter with Orange County deputy sheriffs turned deadly Monday for a man they say tried to run them over with a stolen vintage vehicle.

James E. Martin, 40, of Orlando, aimed the stolen 1964 Chevrolet Impala at Deputy Sgts. Luis A. Tabio and Jeff Freeman when they attempted to question him outside a gated condominium complex, the Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.
