Fatal wrecks in Arkansas

Three people, including a minor, were killed Saturday in Sebastian County after a luxury vehicle struck their SUV head-on, troopers said.

The wreck happened at about 4:30 p.m. in Central City, as a 2002 GMC Yukon headed east on Arkansas 22 near Carter Street, according to a preliminary report by Arkansas State Police. A westbound 2014 Land Rover LR2 crossed the centerline, hitting the GMC, the report states. 

Troopers said the crash killed 34-year-old Krystal Jones and 54-year-old Sherrie McCutcheon, both of Charleston, as well as a minor whose name and age weren’t immediately released. Three other minors who were passengers in the GMC were hurt. 

The driver of the Land Rover, who was also a minor, was injured. 

Troopers described conditions at the time of the crash as clear and dry. 

At least 176 people have died as a result of crashes on Arkansas roads so far this year, according to preliminary figures from the state Department of Public Safety.
