Henry Co., VA - State Police say a pedestrian struck and killed by a Henry County deputy's cruiser stepped into the road.

A state police spokesman says investigators don't believe Deputy Justin Stone was at fault.

A marked cruiser driven by Stone hit Oliver Chester Rumley, 49, on U.S. 220 on Thursday night.

State police say investigators found Stone tried to swerve to avoid Rumley.

The Collinsville resident died from his injuries.

Henry County Sheriff Lane Perry says Stone is on administrative leave during the investigation.
