The fatal crash happened around 1:30 a.m., on U.S. Highway 95 south of Hawthorne. Dispatchers arrived to the area shortly after.
According to reports, a deputy attempted to pull McKnight over for speeding on SR 362. He then refused to stop and instead turned southbound on US-95, directly into the path of an oncoming semi.
