A 30-year-old Arkansas man died Monday after his vehicle hit a ditch and overturned, authorities said.
The wreck happened at 12:30 a.m. at the intersection of Arkansas 7 and Dick Henry Lane in Boone County, according to a preliminary accident report from Arkansas State Police.
Troopers said Richard Peasley was driving a 2002 Dodge south on Arkansas 7 when he lost control on a curve and left the road. The Harrison resident suffered fatal injuries when the Dodge hit a ditch and overturned.
Conditions were described as clear and dry at the time of the wreck.
At least 252 people have died in accidents on Arkansas roads so far this year, according to preliminary figures.
