A Rison man was killed late Monday afternoon in a single vehicle accident south of Kingsland in slick highway conditions.
Jerry L. Smith, 39, of Rison was traveling north on a rain-slick Highway 79 when his 1990 Honda Accord crossed the center line and southbound lane of the highway before entering the ditch and colliding with several trees. His vehicle came to rest facing south in the southbound ditch, according to an Arkansas State Police preliminary accident report.
Smith died at the scene of the accident.
The accident occurred at 4:50 p.m.
