IMMOKALEE, Fla.--A sheriff's deputy shot and killed a driver who allegedly drove a stolen truck in his direction early Wednesday, the sheriff's office said.

The deputy, who had been pursuing the stolen truck, had stepped out of his patrol car before the driver turned the truck toward him, the Collier County sheriff's office said.

A woman in the truck was not injured. The sheriff's office did not identify the deputy or the person who was killed.
