A 33-year-old White Hall man was killed Wednesday morning in a traffic accident in the city of Thornton in Calhoun County.
A report from the Arkansas State Police says that Joel David Yarberry was traveling south on Highway 79 at 12:20 a.m. when the 2016 Dodge Charger he was driving exited the left side of the roadway for unknown reason before rotating counter clock-wise 90 degrees. The report says the vehicle then struck a tree and caught on fire.
The report says the weather conditions were cloudy and the road was wet at the time of the accident.
The Arkansas State Police reports this is the 306th fatality on Arkansas roads this year.
