Certain factors are considered during crash investigations, including the weather, possible driver impairment and distraction. Figuring out which one or more of these factors led to a particular motor vehicle accident can become more complicated when all of the occupants fail to survive. In some cases, Arkansas police may never discover the key factor that initiated the crash.
Sometime after 8 p.m. on a Saturday, the Arkansas State Police received a call that a crash occurred at the intersection of Arkansas Highway 355 and U.S. Highway 278. When they arrived at the scene, they discovered that only a single vehicle was involved. The evidence at the scene suggests that the driver somehow failed to maintain control of the vehicle.
