An Ashley County woman died Tuesday as a result of an automobile accident on U.S. 82 at the Ashley-Union County line.

Joanna Ward, 30, of Crossett was traveling west on U.S. 82 when the Toyota Corolla she was driving crossed the eastbound lane and traveled through a grassy area before overturning as it entered water. The vehicle came to rest on its top, fully submerged in water, according to an Arkansas State preliminary accident report.

The accident occurred at 3:34 p.m. The weather was clear and the roadway was dry at the time of the accident.

At least 123 people have died as a result of accidents on Arkansas roads this year, according to preliminary figures.
