Little Rock police spokesman Sgt. Cassandra Davis told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that four cars were involved in an accident shortly before 3 p.m. at the 19,000 block of Cantrell Road.

Davis said a black Chrysler 300 was traveling westbound when it crossed the center lane and struck a gold Buick. A cream GMC heading eastbound tried to avoid the accident but struck the Buick as well.

A silver Honda SUV heading westbound also hit the Buick and flipped into a ditch, according to Davis. The driver of the Honda, a female whose identity has not yet been released, was killed. The driver of the Buick was transported to UAMS with life-threatening injuries.

Other individuals involved were later transported to the hospital for minor injuries, including two children, Davis said.

Authorities are still investigating and Davis said no arrests have been made at this time.
