A 73-year-old Arkansas man was killed early Tuesday when his vehicle ran under a tractor-trailer along U.S. 49 near Marvell.

The report said James Bailey of Poplar Grove suffered fatal injuries after hitting the truck's trailer as it turned.

The report did not identify the truck's driver. Officials noted no other injuries.

    Do our officials, elected or appointed, ever do anything to stop or slow down the ongoing

    AR highway slaughter? Just file the report away somewhere is about all they do, I guess.

    I'm still trying to figure out how all these other people get on freeways going the wrong way. 67/167 was notorious for this for decades. Now it's spread to I40. Drunk? High? Suicide by ambulance? There's got to be something that can be done.
