Police: Officer speeding at time of fatal crash

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police say an officer
involved in a wreck that killed a local man was traveling almost 30
mph over the speed limit.
Police Capt. Patrick Stewart said Monday that officer John Paull
has been placed on administrative leave.
Stewart says Paull was traveling 64 mph in a 35 mph zone before
applying his brakes to slow to between 56 and 59 mph before the
collision early Thursday. Police say the accident occurred after a
car driven by 49-year-old Raul Becerra crossed the path of Paull's
vehicle.
Becerra, whose license had been revoked, died at the scene.
Paull was traveling to a non-emergency call and was not using
his emergency lights or siren at the time of the accident. Police
say he was using his vehicle's low-beam headlights. He was not
seriously injured.
