OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Surveillance video shows a hit-and-run crash between two vehicles that led to the fatal shooting of a deaf man by an Oklahoma City police officer.

The crash happened Tuesday night, just minutes before police officers encountered 35-year-old Magdiel Sanchez at the address where a vehicle driven by his father that was involved in the hit-and-run had gone.

Sanchez, who family members say was deaf, was holding a metal pipe in his right hand and was fatally shot when he didn’t respond to commands to drop the pipe.

The surveillance video shows a collision between a pickup truck and another vehicle. The pickup is struck in the side and rolls over before coming to rest on its wheels. The car that struck the pickup continues on without stopping.
