CORNING, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say two people were killed and another was injured in a head-on crash in northeast Arkansas.

Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller says the crash happened Wednesday morning on U.S. 67 near the Clay and Randolph county line. According to a preliminary report from Arkansas State Police, 43-year-old Christopher Bryant of Carlisle and 66-year-old Brenda Christopher of Russellville were killed when a semi crossed the center line and crashed into their vehicle.

Another passenger in Bryant’s vehicle was injured and taken to a hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

Miller tells Jonesboro television station KAIT (https://bit.ly/2hcVNc9 ) that investigators think the semi’s driver, who wasn’t injured, may have fallen asleep or was distracted.
