Preliminary details about the crash put forth by authorities say that the crash happened at the intersection of Walcott Street (U.S. Highway 59) and W. Broadway Street (Highway 49).
Investigators said that 44-year-old April Jones was a passenger in a Chevy S Series that was traveling northbound along Walcott Street.
