YUKON, Okla. – A widow believes sleepwalking may be to blame for her husband’s death.

The death happened early Saturday morning, just a few blocks from the Yukon Police Department.

Adam Johnson, 33, died after being run over by a Yukon police officer.

Johnson worked at Tinker Air Force Base and leaves behind a 3-year-old son.

The family says Johnson had a history of sleepwalking and took prescription medication for those issues.

According to the preliminary investigation, Johnson may have laid down in the roadway at the time he was run over.

The victim’s widow hopes Johnson is remembered as a loving family man.

“He was a great husband and a loving father,” said Faith Johnson.  “He’ll be missed more than words can express.”

The Yukon police officer involved in the wreck did not suffer any serious injuries.

Burial services for Johnson will be held later this week.
