‎Two people were killed and four were injured Friday when two vehicles collided at the County Road 32 and U.S. 278 intersection in Bradley County.

Fidel Martinez-Calois, 45, of Warren was southbound on Bradley County Road 32 when his Ford van traveled into the path of an eastbound Volvo on U.S. 278, according to information in an Arkansas State Police preliminary accident report.

The Volvo hit the right side of the van, causing both vehicles to slide across the eastbound shoulder of the highway before coming to rest in a ditch, according to the accident report.

Juan Manuel Medina, 40, and Cesar Figuerao-Gutierrez, 35, both of Warren and passengers in the Martinez-Calois’ van were both killed in the accident.
