LAKESIDE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a man shot and killed by San Diego County sheriff’s deputies on the Barona Indian Reservation had tried to hit them with his car.

He was identified him Friday as 50-year-old Jeroen Koornwinder of Santa Barbara.

A report of a reckless driver sent deputies to the reservation Wednesday afternoon. They spotted a man in a truck and a chase began.

Authorities say when deputies tried to deploy a device to flatten the truck tires, the driver sped up and tried to hit them. Other deputies opened fire.

The truck kept going, hitting a patrol car and then a Lexus before running off the road.

Koornwinder died at the scene.

Three women in the Lexus were hurt. Two remain hospitalized but are expected to live.
