MALVERN, Ark. (AP) - A Malvern man was killed and two other people were injured in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 270 east of Malvern.

Arkansas State Police say 56-year-old Earnest Byrd died in the crash early Friday.

A state police report says Byrd was westbound on the highway when an eastbound pickup truck crossed the centerline and struck the pickup Byrd was driving. The report says Byrd’s truck then went off the roadway and overturned in a ditch.

The driver and a passenger in the second truck were hospitalized with undisclosed injuries.

The report says it was raining and the road was wet at the time of the collision.
