A 48-year-old Searcy woman was killed Sunday afternoon in a collision with a semitrailer north of Marvell.

Annie Irene Lowery was driving a 2007 Hyundai Sonata south on U.S. Highway 49 in Phillips County when she “veered into the northbound lane” and struck the front of a 2017 Freightliner, according to the Arkansas State Police fatal crash summary. Both vehicles came to a stop on opposite shoulders of the highway.

Two minors also were injured and taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital. It was rainy and the road was wet at the time of the accident, which occurred at 2:33 p.m., Trooper Markeith Neal wrote.
