Two Saline County residents were bitten by a Little Rock police K-9 officer on Monday after the dog escaped from his enclosure. One of the victims was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
The Little Rock Police Department said the dog, Ammo, who had been with the department for three years, escaped from his pen, jumped a 6-foot privacy fence and then went across the street where he bit two neighbors, Trent Holloway, 35, and Beth Norman, 73.
Tylor Wright, 18, of Benton was killed in a one-vehicle accident Monday morning on Midland Road in Bryant when the vehicle he was traveling in hit a tree.
Wright died at the scene, authorities said.
Saline County Sheriffâ€™s Deputy Matt Green was dispatched to the accident site around 2:13 a.m.
According to a report from the Saline County Sheriffâ€™s Office, witness Austin Hanig, 18, of Bryant had been riding in the bed of the 2002 white Ford F-150 moments before the accident occurred.
The city of Bryant and Mayor Jill Dabbs are set to host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the completion of Sheaff Avenue this Thursday, Aug. 7 at noon.
Dabbs said that the road was built to connect the Springhill Road overpass to Woodland Road and will offer those traveling into the city from the north an alternate route to the south end of town, relieving congestion on Reynolds Road.
