OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – A part-time police officer has been killed in a traffic crash in suburban Kansas City.

Overland Park police say 58-year-old David M. Stubbs, of Overland Park, was killed Friday when a man driving a stolen car ran a red light and collided with Stubbs’ vehicle at an intersection.

The Kansas City Star reports that Stubbs was a part-time police officer in Louisburg, Kan.

Police say the driver of the stolen car fled from the scene on foot, but was arrested nearby a few minutes later.

No charges have been filed. But Johnson County Court records show the 24-year-old Olathe man arrested Friday had warrants for his arrest pending in two other auto theft cases.
