Collision with truck on interstate kills Arkansas man, 34

A 34-year-old Conway man died after crashing his vehicle into the back of a truck on Interstate 530 on Saturday morning, authorities said.

It happened shortly after 8:45 a.m. as Steven D. Rohr Jr. was driving a 2002 Ford south on the highway south of mile marker 31 in White Hall, according to an Arkansas State Police report.

Authorities say Rohr's Ford hit the back of a box trailer being hauled by a 2005 Peterbilt truck. Rohr suffered fatal injuries. No one else was listed as being hurt.

Conditions at the time were said to be clear and dry.

At least 328 people have died in traffic crashes on Arkansas roads so far this year, according to preliminary figures.

CORRECTION: Due to incorrect information in an Arkansas State Police report, an earlier version of this story listed the wrong spelling of Steven D. Rohr Jr.'s last name. It also listed an incorrect time of the collision.
