Wednesday, October 11, 2017

An Oklahoma man was killed in a one-vehicle accident Saturday in western Carroll County.

A preliminary report from Arkansas State Police Trooper Ronnie Boyd says Earl Carr, 70, of Purcell, Okla., was driving a 2010 Honda southbound on Arkansas Highway 187 approximately three miles south of Beaver when the carís right rear wheel went off the roadway. The car went down into a ditch before Carr steered it back onto the roadway, where it overturned and went back into the ditch.

The accident occurred at 4:41 p.m., according to the report, which says the weather was clear and the road was dry.

Carr became the 382nd person to die in a traffic accident in Arkansas this year.
