Four people were killed and two were injured in crashes on Arkansas roads Thursday, according to Arkansas State Police preliminary reports.

Harge's 2006 Nissan ran off the road, and she lost control of the vehicle, overcorrecting and crossing into the other lane, the police report said. The vehicle then hit a 2020 Jeep head-on, the report said.

The wreck injured an unidentified minor in Harge's vehicle and the driver of the Jeep, 64-year-old Douglas Gregg of Mountain Home.
