Troopers have reported the road to be dry and the weather to be clear at the time of the accident. The report did not mention the time of the accident. The accident occurred on Tuesday, January 4.
Hailing from Jefferson County, Jalyn Mayweathers, aged 26, succumbed to her injuries after a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer. The crash occurred just a little beyond 7 a.m. on Wednesday, January 5, and happened in rural Hot Spring County.
Jalyn was a passenger with the driver, Rashad Nalls, aged 31 in a 2009 Dodge. They were passing another vehicle when a Kenworth truck came from the westbound lane; both vehicles swerved in the same direction and crashed into each other head-on. Nalls was taken to CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs for his injuries.
The multiple crashes in Arkansas remain under police investigation.
