JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Craighead County sheriff's deputy was involved in a crash in Jonesboro on Johnson Ave. and Main St. Wednesday afternoon.

A prisoner transport van was part of the crash. No prisoners were in the van at the time.

Deputy Dewayne Gatlin was taken to a Jonesboro hospital and is expected to be okay, according to Capt. Justin Roland with the Craighead County Sheriff's Office.
