Deputy crashes car into pedestrian in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Highway Patrol says an Orange County Sheriff's deputy struck and killed a pedestrian with his patrol car while attempting to disperse a crowd.
According to FHP, Deputy Joey Busque was in his vehicle trying to break up a crowd around an illegal street race early Wednesday in Orlando when 21-year-old Brian Pancheco Sanchez of Kissimmee walked into his path.
FHP says the crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
The sheriff's office says Busque will be assigned to administrative duties for at least a week.

    I've never heard of breaking up a crowd using a police car before. He must have drove in there among them. He should have knew he'd hit someone. What a idiot.
