First, and foremost, my heart goes out to the victim, and his family. Just like the anbulance driver, it was a tragic mistake. It's so easy to look at a public servent, and think "he should have known better". But we all make mistakes, driving. Usally, we are lucky, when nothing happens. (You accidently run a red light, but luckily, there was nobody to hit.)
Fate just happed to deal a cruel hand, on this occasion. I feel very sorry for the deputy, who, I'm sure, feels very bad, right now. He never meant to hurt anyone. It was a mistake.
