The same Arkansas county lost three of its residents in one week. The latest motor vehicle accident took place on U.S. Highway 49. Two vehicles were carrying six people who suffered a variety of injuries -- including one woman who suffered fatal injuries.
Troopers with the Arkansas State Police reported that around 3:40 p.m. one of the vehicles was heading north on the highway as the other was coming toward it in the southbound lane. At some point, the northbound vehicle attempted to make a left turn off the highway. Unfortunately for those involved, the turn was made into the path of the southbound vehicle.
