The funeral for the sheriff's deputy who was killed after an accident with a cow was held today at Rose Heights Church in Tyler.

Smith County Deputy Robert Britton was directing traffic after a cow was found lying on a Bullard FM road when the animal reportedly suddenly got up and hit Britton in the chest, knocking him to the ground.

The deputy died after a weeklong battle with the injuries he sustained that day.
