fatal accident


Two people died Thursday in two-vehicle collision in Lake Village.

The driver of a northbound 2001 Peterbilt was making a left turn (with a green arrow) off of U.S. 65 and onto U.S. 82, according to a preliminary Arkansas State Police report.

Karena M. Everett, 26, of Pine Bluff was driving south on U.S. 65 in a 2018 Hyundai when she failed to yield a red light and hit the truck head-on, according to the report.

Everett and her passenger, Diamante Estrellas, 23, of Little Rock, both died.

The accident occurred at 7:40 a.m. The weather was rainy and the road was wet, according to the report.

At least 576 people have been killed on Arkansas roads so far this year, according to preliminary figures.
