Marlon Jackson Killed, James Jackson, Kendarious Lacy Injured in Crawford Co., AR, Accident

Crawford County, AR -- June 2, 2017, Marlon Jackson was killed, James Jackson and Kendarious Lacy were injured, following a two-car accident.

Authorities from the Arkansas State Police reported that the incident occurred along I-40 near the town of Alma at around 11:58 p.m.

Preliminary police reports indicated that two vehicles, a 2006 Saab and a 2002 Ford Escape, were both traveling eastbound along Interstate 40. For reasons which were not made clear in the reports, the two vehicles somehow simultaneously lost control and swerved onto the median of the highway. Police say the two vehicles overturned before coming to a stop.

As a result of the crash, 34-year-old Marlon Jackson, a passenger in the Ford, was ejected and died at the scene from his injuries. Another passenger from the Ford, 19-year-old Lacy, as well as a passenger from the Saab, 18-year-old James Jackson, were taken to Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith for treatment of their injuries. The drivers of both vehicles appear to have been uninjured.

Police did not say what factors might have contributed to this crash. Their investigations are ongoing.

Commentary

There are obviously a lot of details missing surrounding this accident. Two vehicles traveling next to each other don't just lose control at the same time for no good reason. The obvious assumption is that the two vehicles somehow made contact with each other. I don't want to say I know this for sure, however, since without evidence that's no more than speculation. However, it's clear that something out of the ordinary happened that caused both of these drivers to lose control. Considering a significant number of people were affected by this, especially with a fatality, there needs to be an extensive investigation to determine what--or who--caused this crash.
