Husband of former Disney star killed in Arkansas crash

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas State Police say the husband of former Disney star Tiffany Thornton has been killed in a single-vehicle crash.

A police report says 35-year-old Christopher Carney was in a vehicle that veered off a highway on a curve early Friday near Hot Springs and struck a tree. Police say Carney and the driver, 37-year-old Ezekiel Blanton, were killed.

The city confirmed that Carney, the son of Hot Springs Mayor Ruth Carney, was married to Thornton.

The actress' credits include Disney television shows "Sonny with a Chance" and "So Random!" She's currently a radio personality in Hot Springs, which is about 50 miles southwest of Little Rock.

Carney was featured on the MTV show "twentyfourseven," about his and his brother's move to Los Angeles to break into show business. The show debuted in 2006.
