Police have identified the man who died in a wreck in Little Rock earlier this week.

The crash happened around 2:50 p.m. Wednesday in the 7000 block of Arch Street, which is south of the road’s intersection with West 65th Street.

A witness driving north on the road reported seeing a 2006 Ford Crown Victoria approach him from behind at a “high rate of speed,” according to a Little Rock Police Department report released Friday.

The Ford's driver, 35-year-old Miranda Duncan of North Little Rock, later passed him on a double yellow line into a curve, the witness said.

At that point, Duncan’s car traveled off the road and struck a concrete culvert before traveling into a wooded area, striking a large tree and coming to a rest on its passenger side, according to police.

A passenger inside the car, Joshua Barbee of North Little Rock, was found dead at the scene, the report states.

Duncan was ejected from the vehicle and transported to UAMS Medical Center in critical condition. Her condition as of Friday morning was not immediately clear.

Results of an alcohol test were pending at the time of the report. An investigation is ongoing into the crash.

Travel conditions were described as rainy and cloudy.

According to state police data, at least 436 people have died on Arkansas roads so far this year.
