A Lincoln County woman was killed early Sunday morning in 2-vehicle accident on I-530 in Jefferson County.

Destiney Jones, 21, of Gould died in the accident, according to a State Police preliminary accident report.

According to the accident report, a 2016 Ford was traveling south in the outside traffic lane while another vehicle (unidentified in the police report) was traveling south in the inside traffic lane when the two vehicles collided causing the vehicle in the inside traffic lane to exit the west side of the interstate and overturn multiple times, ejecting Jones, a passenger in the vehicle.

One person was also injured in the accident, but the State Police report did not identify the person injured, the driver of either vehicle, or the type of vehicle in which Jones was traveling.

The accident occurred on Interstate 530 at mile marker 44 on December 3 at 4:13 a.m. Travel conditions were clear and the roadway was dry at the time of the accident, according to the accident report.

At least 456 people have died on Arkansas roads this year.
