Car accidents without a doubt are a tragedy and all too often result in irreparable losses. The heaviest of losses are definitely the ones where human lives are lost. Earlier this month, two people lost their lives in a car accident and fire near 7024 Arch.
The accident happened at about 3:30 a.m. on December 6. Nicholas Brown, hailing from Summit Argo Ill and Antonie Lester from Pine Bluff lost their lives in the tragic car crash, according to police reports. Brown, 35 years of age, was driving with Lester, 32 years of age, being the passenger.
According to the police report, the vehicle, a 2007 Audi. was traveling at a ‘high rate of speed’ when it steered off the road towards the east and overcorrected. The vehicle then went towards the west where it collided with a utility pole.
Upon collision, the vehicle went up in flames, which caused the death of both Brown and Lester. The police report claims that both the driver and the passenger were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
The weather conditions at the time of the car accident and fire were reported as dry and clear.
