MENIFEE, Ark. (AP) - Officials say a University of Mississippi law professor was killed in a car crash on Interstate 40 in central Arkansas.

Arkansas State Police say the crash happened Tuesday morning on I-40 between Conway and Little Rock. A preliminary report says that 58-year-old Richard Barnes of Oxford, Miss., crossed the median into oncoming traffic and collided with a tractor trailer.

State police say Barnes was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck's driver wasn't injured.

Ole Miss says Barnes had been a member of the faculty since 1989. He taught contracts, secured transactions, commercial law and federal Indian law. Ole Miss says Barnes was twice selected as professor of the year by law school students.
