A Springdale driver died early Thursday morning in a head-on collision on U.S. 65 in Lake Village.

Colby P. Ebarb, 21, of Springdale was traveling north on U.S. 65 in Lake Village near the Chicot County Medical Center when the 2016 Nissan Frontier he was driving crossed several lanes of traffic into the southbound lane where the vehicle hit another vehicle head-on, according to a preliminary Arkansas State Police report.

Ebarb died at the scene.

The other driver, who was not identified in the preliminary police report, was not injured.

The crash occurred at 3:50 a.m. The weather was cloudy and the road was dry.

At least 183 people have been killed on Arkansas roads so far this year, according to preliminary figures.
