A Thursday morning wreck in Phillips County left a toddler dead and three other people hurt.
Dante Knight, 21, was driving a 2000 Volkswagen east on Arkansas 44 in Lake View about 12:06 a.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve and hit a tree, according to an Arkansas State Police accident report.
Knight and his three passengers — Samantha Jackson, 22; Dante Knight Jr., who turned 1 year old Wednesday; and Anastasia Paige, 2 — were taken to Helena Regional Medical Center with injuries, state police said. Paige was pronounced dead at 1:45 a.m. by Coroner Tommy Hunt, according to the report.
The report didn't include the extent of the others' injuries.
At the time of the accident, the weather was clear and the road dry, state police said.
Paige's death marked the 48th recorded so far this year by Arkansas State Police.
