Two are dead and a police officer sustained minor injuries from a vehicle accident Wednesday morning, according to a statement from the Bryant Police Department.
Around 1:45 a.m., Bryant Officer Seth Wakefield conducted a routine traffic stop on Interstate 30 Eastbound around the 123-mile marker. Officer Wakefield noticed a vehicle that had defective equipment and conducted the stop. The vehicle was pulled over on the inside lane next to the center median wall. Once the stop was completed, Officer Wakefield returned to his patrol unit.
It was then that the patrol car and the vehicle on the stop, were struck by an 18-wheeler, which resulted in two fatalities. Officer Wakefield sustained minor injuries and
was treated and released from Saline Memorial Hospital.
The officer was on the Interstate working the DWI Task Force. This is a state-funded task force that allows officers to look for any individuals that might be driving while impaired.
