The collision occurred Saturday afternoon on Highway 67 when a small truck struck the van as it made a U-turn near the town of Corning, he said.

Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller told NBC affiliate KAIT of Jonesboro that the van was from Tennessee, and the truck may have been carrying fish.

A conclusive cause of the collision was still under investigation.
