A Rison woman was killed and a Rison man was injured in a single-vehicle accident Sunday on U.S. 63 in Cleveland County.

Stephen Vonnie Clark, 60, was traveling north on U.S. 63 when the 2019 Jeep he was driving ran off the right side of the highway and hit a fence and two trees before it came to a stop, facing west, according to an Arkansas State Police preliminary report.

Clark’s passenger, Mary Elizabeth Clark, 59, was killed. Clark was injured and taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center.

The weather was clear and the roadway was damp, according to State Police.

At least three people have died as a result of accidents on Arkansas roads this year, according to preliminary figures.
