The Eastland County, TX Sheriff's Office is mourning the loss of one of their own today after Deputy Kenneth Maltby, 72, was killed in a head-on collision Wednesday morning. 

The accident occurred on FM 570 when the driver of another other vehicle turned into oncoming traffic and struck Deputy Maltby's patrol vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle allegedly swerved out of his lane of traffic and into oncoming traffic in order to avoid different vehicle. 

Deputy Maltby had been with the Eastland County Sheriff's Office since 2014.
