Wooster volunteer firefighters responded to a two-vehicle, head-on collision Friday afternoon that caused four people to be transported to Conway Regional Medical Center.
A Honda Passport traveling southwest, driven by Kei Cummings, 25, of Twin Groves was struck by a Crown Victoria when the driver, D.B. Hill, crossed the center line on Highway 285 in the Twin Groves area. As of press time, Hill was listed as in critical condition, having sustained potentially life-threatening injuries.
Arkansas State Trooper Jason Young said everyone involved sustained significant injuries.
Greenbrier and Damascus fire departments responded, as well as MEMS paramedics and the Faulkner County Emergency Squad.
Captain Wayne Hartness of the Wooster Volunteer Fire Department said when he arrived on the scene, two of the occupants of the Honda Passport, Michael Delph, 20, and Byron McVay, 30, both of Twin Groves, had managed to exit a vehicle and were lying on the road. The driver, Cummings, was inside the vehicle with a compound fracture to the leg.
A witness who would not give his name said he saw that Cummings’ bone had broken the skin and his leg appeared to be “hanging.”
“The driver of the Crown Vic was wearing his seat belt. That’s why he’s still alive,” Young said.
McVay and Cummings were listed in serious condition, having sustained extensive injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening.
Delph was listed in stable condition.
