A traffic accident resulted in a fatality near Crystal Springs Sunday around 4:00 P M.
An Arkansas State Police report identified the driver of the 1999 Ford F-250 truck as Gary Weems, 59, of Benton. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
Preliminary reports indicate that two tour buses and other vehicles were traveling eastbound in the 9400 block of Albert Pike where traffic has to merge from two lanes to one.
A Ford F-250 pickup truck pulling a camper trailer also traveling eastbound skid off the highway and struck a tree causing the camper to detach from the truck. The truck’s cab was crushed in a rollover impact with the tree and the driver was killed.
