A 35-year-old driver from Wynne died Sunday in a two-vehicle collision on an icy highway in Poinsett County, authorities said.
Johnny M. Hefner was driving a 2008 Chrysler north on an "iced" Arkansas 1 about 5:45 p.m. when her vehicle spun out of control and ended up in the opposing lane, where it was hit by a southbound 1999 Jeep, according to an Arkansas State Police report.
Hefner died at the scene.
The other driver, identified as 42-year-old Tammy Kaye Hutchings, was taken to St. Bernards Medical Center in Jonesboro with unspecified injuries, police said.
The death was the 51st fatality in a traffic crash in Arkansas so far this year, according to preliminary reports.
