TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (AP) - Police say a longtime Tullahoma city employee was killed when the pickup truck he was driving was struck by a vehicle being pursued by Coffee County sheriff’s deputies.

Tullahoma police Capt. Scott Jackson says the crash occurred shortly after midnight Thursday. He says 66-year-old Joe Moon, a parks and recreation employee, died at the scene of the crash.

Jackson says the chase involving the deputies and two suspects started near Manchester. He says the suspects crashed into the driver side of the truck driven by Moon.

The suspects - an 18-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man - haven’t been identified. Jackson says they were taken to a hospital.

Coffee County Sheriff Steve Graves declined immediate comment pending results of the investigation. Tullahoma police did not say whether the suspects had been charged.
