Craighead County, AR -- March 15, 2017, a teenager was killed, Dustin Harmon, Carol Shearon, and two children were injured following a car accident.

Preliminary investigations from the Arkansas State Police indicate that the accident occurred around 4:34 p.m. south of Sedgwick.

According to the accident summary, 18-year-old Harmon was driving a Chevrolet southbound along US Highway 63 with an unidentified 15-year-old passenger. In the opposite lanes was a Ford driven by 67-year-old Shearon. In her vehicle were two boys, ages 6 and 3.
