A Conway man was killed in a one-vehicle accident early Thursday morning on Highway 60 in Perry County.
According to an Arkansas State Police fatal crash summary, Justin B. Harper, 25, was traveling westbound in a Honda Civic on Highway 60 in Toadsuck around 1:30 a.m. when he “failed to negotiate a curve and left the roadway and struck two trees.”
A passenger, Kathryn Ellis, was transported to Conway Regional Medical Center where she was treated and released.
Ault said he believed Harper was driving “too fast for the conditions” when he lost control of the vehicle.
The report lists the weather condition as cloudy and the road condition as wet.
