Man on ramp struck, killed by deputy

A Marion County deputy who hit and injured a pedestrian less than a year ago while driving a sheriff’s wagon drove into another man Sunday night, this time causing a fatality. Adam McCarty, 31, of Jamestown was trying to get a gas can from the back of his pickup truck on a ramp to Interstate 65 from 29th Street when he was struck by Deputy Erich Gephart. Last November, Gephart hit and seriously injured Charles Hill, 38, who was walking with his daughter in the 900 block of Fox Hill Drive. Gephart was placed on leave for about four months after the previous incident.
