ST. JOSEPH, Mo.— Deputies acted within the full parameters of policy during a high-speed pursuit earlier this month that ended in the death of an allegedly suicidal man, Buchanan County Sheriff Mike Strong says.

Several 911 calls described the Ford Escort weaving in and out of traffic and attempting to hit vehicles head-on. Deputy Jeremy Keener was flagged down by a motorist and initiated the pursuit, which lasted about eight minutes on U.S. Highway 59 and ended with the death of the driver, Anthony McCullough, 30.
