   Special Deputy Sheriff Kay Gregory was killed in a two-vehicle accident while delivering official documents to the Marion County Courthouse.

   While traveling northbound on Delaware Street, she was struck by the driver of a vehicle who was eastbound on South Street after disregarding the red light at the intersection. She lost control of her unmarked sheriff's vehicle and struck a tree.

   She was transported to Wishard Memorial Hospital where she died.

   The 30-year-old driver, who was injured, was taken to Methodist Hospital where she was charged with driving on a suspended license.

   Special Deputy Sheriff Gregory, from Indianapolis, had previously served with the Indianapolis Police Department for 23 years and was one of the agency's first female sergeants. As a special deputy, she was responsible for serving court orders, civil papers and tax warrants.

   She was survived by her husband, four children, 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Her husband also served with the Marion County Sheriff's Department, had previously served as the marshal with the Gosport Town Marshal's Office and retired as a sergeant with the Indianapolis Police Department.
