Deputy Sheriff Kenneth Maltby was killed in a vehicle crash on FM 570, near County Road 442, south of Eastland.
A vehicle traveling in the opposite direction swerved into the opposite travel lane to avoid another vehicle but instead struck Deputy Maltby’s patrol car head-on. Deputy Maltby suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.
Deputy Maltby had served with the Eastland County Sheriff’s Office for two years after having retired from the Dallas Police Department.
