Driving is an enormous responsibility. Every decision an Arkansas driver makes -- or fails to make -- potentially affects his or her passengers and everyone else on or near the road. Neglecting the duties and responsibilities with which a driver is entrusted can result in a motor vehicle accident.
Shortly after midnight on a recent, rainy Saturday, troopers with the Arkansas State Police received a report regarding an accident involving two vehicles on U.S. Highway 70. The preliminary report revealed that the two vehicles were heading in opposite directions on the highway. For some unknown reason, the westbound vehicle veered into the opposite lane of travel and collided with the eastbound vehicle.
