A Maumelle police officer was among those injured in a fatality accident on Saturday morning.
Killed in the accident was Anthony Walker, 22, Maumelle, who was driving a Jeep on state Hwy. 100, near the intersection with state Hwy. 365.
The police officer injured was Christopher Austin Cruse, who was responding to what police spokesman Capt. Jim Hansard called “a call for service.”
Two other people in the Jeep were injured as well, but those names were not released by deadline on Wednesday afternoon.
Hansard said that preliminary report showed that Cruse was headed north on the highway, while Walker was driving south in the northbound land.
Cruse was called “seriously injured” in the accident by Maumelle Fraternal Order of Police President Michael McNeil.
McNeil told our columnist Neal Moore that Cruse broke two legs and also has a broken arm. A fund for Cruse’s medical expenses has been established at Arvest Bank as the Christopher Cruse Family Contribution Fund.
Funeral services for Walker were set on Wednesday with visitation at 3 p.m. on Saturday and a memorial service at 1 p.m. on Monday.
Both will be held at Robinson Mortuary. 1201 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Little Rock.
