Denver, Colo. -- The driver of a getaway pickup that got stuck in snow on an unplowed dead-end street was shot and killed by a Lakewood police officer Saturday after another officer slipped under the truck, police said.

With one officer lying in the snow, the second officer fired one shot at the driver, who was spinning the tires and rocking the vehicle forward and backward to try to get it moving.

The driver and a passenger, whose names were not released, were allegedly trying to steal a trailer when someone near the 1200 block of South Ammons Street called police, said Steve Davis, a Lakewood Police Department public information officer.
