Ga. deputy dies in car crash

The Associated Press
Officer Down: Deputy Sheriff Marvin Jerome Scarlett

MCDONOUGH, Ga. — Authorities say a Henry County sheriff's deputy was killed when his cruiser plowed into three trucks while responding to a traffic accident.

Authorities said 42-year-old Marvin Jerome Scarlett died about 5 am yesterday at the scene of the crash on I-75 just north of Georgia 20.

A spokesman for the Georgia State Patrol, Larry Schnall, says Scarlett was on his way to the scene of a wreck when he came upon traffic that had backed up because of the accident. He says the officer's car struck a pickup truck, a box truk and then a tractor-trailer. There were no other injuries.

The sheriff's office said Scarlett had been a Henry County deputy since 2001.
