Arkansas car accident occurs when car strikes boy riding bike

A young boy was riding his bicycle in front of his Arkansas home recently when he was struck by a vehicle. A neighbor was on his front porch and witnessed the car accident. The neighbor said that the boy had stopped prior to be hitting by the vehicle. He also said that he believes that the car was going approximately 30 to 35 miles per hour.

An accident reconstruction team will be able to determine the actual rate of speed at which the vehicle was traveling when it hit the boy, causing him to fall off his bike. The neighbor claimed that it was late afternoon when the accident occurred. He said there were no other vehicles on the road.

Fatal motor vehicle accident leaves many questions unanswered

In many instances, it is quite clear why an accident occurs. Sometimes it is because of distracted driving, such as texting, and other times, it may be due to the person behind the wheel having been drinking. In some cases, a person may have lost control of their vehicle due to a health condition, such as a heart attack. Whatever the case may be, a collision leaves many questions unanswered for family members when a person dies in a motor vehicle accident. This may be the case with a recent Arkansas accident that left three dead and one critically injured.

A 50-year-old man was driving one of the two vehicles involved. He had two passengers in the vehicle with him. One was an 83-year-old man and the other was a 41-year-old woman. All of them had different last names, so it is unclear if they were related. Regardless, they all three were pronounced dead following the crash.

1 dead after fatal motor vehicle accident in Arkansas

An Arkansas woman was killed after a truck collided with her vehicle recently. Reportedly, the wreck occurred shortly prior to 7 a.m. one recent morning. Now, authorities are performing an investigation into the fatal motor vehicle accident

A 33-year-old woman was traveling west in her Ford Taurus. A 45-year-old man was driving a GMC pickup eastbound on the same highway when he left his lane of traffic. He ended up crossing a total of four lanes before his vehicle struck the Taurus. He survived the accident uninjured.

Arkansas car accident seriously injures both drivers

Motor vehicle accidents occur daily, throughout the state of Arkansas and the rest of the country. This is why it is so important to follow traffic rules because it can reduce one's chances of being involved in an accident. Unfortunately, it is no guarantee because not everyone obeys the rules of the road. This appears to be what may have happened in a recent car accident here in Arkansas. 

Two vehicles recently collided just outside of Arkansas City, sending both drivers to hospitals within the area. Apparently, a Chevrolet Cruze collided with a Lincoln Towncar. It is unclear what caused the collision. However, the force of the impact resulted in the vehicles coming to rest off of the highway. Luckily, no other vehicles were involved in the incident. 

Arkansas motorcycle accident kills 1, seriously injures 2 others

Motorcycles are a very popular method of transportation for individuals across Arkansas and the rest of the country. They are not only enjoyable to ride, but they are also very fuel-efficient. Unfortunately, though, they provide less protection during an accident. For that reason, when a motorcycle accident occurs, it isn't uncommon for the motorcyclists involved to be critically injured or even pass away.

Unfortunately, two have been seriously injured and one person has been killed after a motorcycle accident that took place on Arkansas 12 recently. Reportedly, a man driving his motorcycle lost control of it on a recent afternoon. He was trying to take a right-hand curve that was sharp. When he lost control of his motorcycle, it crossed over into the opposite lane. It was at this time that his motorcycle collided with another motorcycle.

Truck accident kills highway worker in Arkansas

Some jobs are more dangerous than others. Any time when a person is out on the highway, they are in danger of being involved in a pedestrian-car accident. A worker for the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department was recently struck and killed in a truck accident. The 59-year-old man was changing a stop sign when he was struck by the trailer of the truck.

Apparently, the truck driver stopped at the sign as he was supposed to do by law. He then made a left turn to get onto U.S. Highway 49 from Arkansas 20. However, something happened during the turn and the trailer ended up striking the worker, who had been with the company since the 1996.

Car accident leads to 1 death, 2 injuries in Arkansas

When people are traveling with a driver, they are literally placing their lives in the driver's hands. One careless move on the part of the driver may quickly result in a tragic car accident leading to injuries or death. Sadly, one man died and two individuals were injured in a recent crash in Arkansas.

The accident took place in the vicinity of Interstate 30. It happened past midnight on a recent Sunday. Police said that a 34-year-old man was driving his vehicle on the Interstate. He suddenly lost control of the vehicle and ran off the roadway before striking a barrier wall made of concrete and then overturning.

Alleged drunk driving kills motorcyclist in Arkansas

Arkansas motorists may share the concern of many about the devastation that can be caused by drivers who choose to get behind the wheel of a vehicle while they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Regardless of the care a driver may take, the actions of a drunk driver can never be anticipated. Accidents that often result from drunk driving are those where the center line is crossed, often causing fatal accidents.

A family is mourning the death of a loved who lost his life on a recent Sunday in Pulaski County. Authorities allege that a 42-year-old driver of a car crossed over into the lanes of oncoming traffic. He reportedly hit one vehicle, but continued traveling in the wrong direction. Police said that the next collision was with a motorcycle, killing the motorcycle rider on impact.

Woman dies in fatal motor vehicle accident in Arkansas

Life is unpredictable and the unexpected can happen at any time. The road is no exception to this rule, with the possibility of some type of motor vehicle accident ever-present. This appears to have been the case in a recent vehicle crash which resulted in injury and death in Arkansas.

The crash happened one morning in late August when a 40-year-old male driver was heading northbound on the freeway. The man was just beginning to enter Washington County when he apparently veered to the right of the road and into a ditch. Reports indicate that the man attempted to maneuver back onto the road, but he ended up over-correcting, causing his truck to cross over both traffic lanes.

MADD works towards stricter drunk driving laws in Arkansas

Operating a motor vehicle is a privilege which drivers should not take for granted. This is why drivers should be fully cognizant when they are behind the wheel. Failure in this respect can result in serious consequences in the case of a crash. One of the worst things a motorist can engage in is drunk driving while on the road in Arkansas.

Lawmakers have ensured there are strict legal penalties for those who end up causing drunk driving accidents. Fear of penalty can play a significant role in deterring people from drinking and driving in the first place. However, it is common for those who are caught drunk driving one time to continue to make the same mistake afterwards.
