TEXARKANA, Ark. — A deputy sheriff was killed in a three-vehicle crash in southwestern Arkansas.

Richardson was driving westbound with a passenger when he hit an oncoming vehicle. That vehicle then hit a tractor-trailer rig.

Drivers of those two vehicles as well as the passenger in the jeep were injured and transported to nearby hospitals.
