A 35-year-old Arkansas man was killed in a head-on collision between a sport utility vehicle and a truck, authorities said.

It happened shortly after 6 p.m. Monday as Michael Garrett of Pocahontas was driving a 2016 GMC Terrain north on U.S. 67 near Martin Road in Pocahontas, according to an Arkansas State Police report.

Authorities say Garrett's vehicle crossed the centerline and hit a southbound 2012 Freightliner head-on.

Garrett suffered fatal injuries. The truck driver was said to be unhurt.

The report didn't indicate what may have caused the SUV to cross the line. Conditions at the time were listed as clear and dry.

The death was at least the 153rd in a traffic crash on an Arkansas road so far this year, according to preliminary figures.

I don't know but is it that hard to keep a car on one side of the road when conditions are........." dry and clear " ?

Yesterday it was 2 teens that got killed after " crossing the centerline"

Road/weather conditions also were " dry and clear "
