Deputy Samuel Smith suffered a fatal heart attack following a struggle with a drunk driving suspect.

When Deputy Smith and another deputy were making the arrest, Deputy Smith complained of being short of breath. As Deputy Smith and the other deputy began to drive back to the jail in separate patrol cars, Deputy Smith's vehicle left the roadway. The other deputy turned around, called for assistance, and began life saving efforts. Deputy Smith was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Deputy Smith had been employed with the Crawford County Sheriff's Department for 11 years.
