Editor’s Note: Preliminary Arkansas State Police fatality reports sometimes contain information that proves to be inaccurate. Typical errors include misspelling names or incorrect ages; outdated information about your place of residence; direction of travel of the vehicle; and incident times. The ASP sometimes corrects these errors in updated reports. ASP reports omit the names of passengers or drivers who were not injured, even in cases where the uninjured drivers appear to be at fault. The reports also omit the names of youth who were injured or killed, although we include these names when we obtain them from other sources.
