The Arkansas car accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan LeVar recognize that early summer is historically a dangerous time to drive our state’s roads, according to local law enforcement reports.
This year is turning out to be no exception.
Consider that in 2012, Arkansas State Police reported that June was the most dangerous month of the year when it came to fatal car accidents.
Those same records indicated that the most dangerous times of day for car accidents in Arkansas were between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
So far this summer, Arkansas drivers seem unable to avoid seasonal car accident perils.
Consider these two recent car accident tragedies captured by local media outlets:
- Summer Accident Example No. 1: Police have identified the victim of a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 49 in Benton County on Fri., June 5th as 38-year-old Thomas Singleton of Bella Vista. According to police and media reports, Singleton lost control of his vehicle just after midnight, crashed into two barrels and a cement wall, then jumped the highway median before coming to a stop.
- Summer Accident Example No. 2: State Police and local news outlets reported another single-vehicle fatal crash on Sat., June 13th on Arkansas 165 in Lonoke County. The victim, a passenger in the car, was identified as 36-year-old Cedric Herron. The driver reportedly lost control of the 2000 Honda Accord while maneuvering a curve in the road. The vehicle hit a tree and flipped several times. Herron was thrown from the car.
