FATAL CAR ACCIDENT Emergency responders work the scene of a fatal accident Thursday on Arkansas 264 west of Lowell near the intersection of Zion Church Road. A man from Northwest Arkansas was killed, police said. The man’s identity has not been released, pending notification of family members. Officer Kris Spangler from the Lowell Police Department said the man was driving a car east on Arkansas 264 when he crossed the center line into incoming traffic, possibly because of a medical condition. The driver of a westbound SUV tried to avoid the car, but still hit it, Spangler said. The driver of the SUV suffered noncritical injuries and was transported to Mercy Medical Center, Spangler said. The accident remains under investigation, he said.
