A two-vehicle accident on Arkansas Highway 385 involving a motorcycle on Wednesday killed a 63-year-old Searcy man.
The crash, which happened around 5:25 p.m. south of Arkansas Highway 157 in the Judsonia area, also injured a 26-year-old Judsonia woman. According to a fatal accident report from the Arkansas State Police, Kallie Joan Nicole Hand, who was driving a 2005 Chevrolet, attempted to turn left into a private drive and turned in front of a 2009 Kawasaki ridden by Jeffrey Wade Williams. The Kawasaki was unable to avoid the Chevrolet, striking it in the front. After the collision, the report states both vehicles came to rest in the roadway near the area of impact.
Hand was taken to Unity Health-White County Medical Center for her injuries. The weather condition was clear and the condition of the road was dry, according to Trooper Andrew Pannell.
