On October 10, 2011, part of I-40 was closed following a three-car accident near the Highway 64/Oak Street in Conway.
Arkansas State Police have reported that driver Joshua Probst, 28, a resident of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, was killed in that accident. Erin N. Powell, 24, and Paisley F. Powell, 3 months, both of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, were passengers in Mr. Probst’s vehicle.
Preliminary reports indicate that Mr. Probst was traveling westbound on I-40 in a 2008 Chrysler minivan when he crossed the median and crashed head on into the 2008 Dodge Caliber driven by Jamie C. Boyd, 39, of Vilonia. Michael A. Boyd, 24, also of Vilonia, Arkansas, was the passenger.
The vehicle driven by Mr. Boyd was then pushed into the path of a 1999 Toyota Camry driven by Michael J. Daugherty, 30, of Conway, Arkansas.
Those injured by this collision were transported to Arkansas Children’s Hospital and UAMS in Little Rock for treatment.
From all of us at The Brad Hendricks Law Firm, we send our condolences to the family of Mr. Probst and our hope for speedy recoveries to all those affected by this collision.
