— A Hartford man was killed Sunday when his car ran off a Sebastian County highway and struck a bridge, authorities said.

Arkansas State Police say 21-year-old Matthew D. Davis was driving a Chevy Camaro south on Arkansas 45 near Arkansas 252 about 1:30 p.m. when the car veered across opposing lanes and into a ditch.

According to a preliminary report, the Camaro then struck a concrete bridge, spun around and came to a rest in a creek embankment.

Davis died from unspecified injuries.

According to the report, the conditions were clear and dry at the time.

Davis was the eighth person to die in a traffic accident in Arkansas so far this year, according to preliminary figures.

Was he wearing a seat belt? People need to see the frequent results of driving without a
a seat belt...That could be one of the most life saving attitude changers we will ever do.

Darn those Camaros, just get mad and run into bridges.
We'd better pass a law out-lawing the ownership of Camaros...
