On February 10, 2022, just before 9:15 a.m., 67-year-old Sharon Garlington of Bearden, AR, was killed in an accident on U.S. 79.
According to Arkansas State Police, Garlington was headed east on Ouachita County 203, where she “failed to yield the right of way” to an unnamed 28-year-old woman from Magnolia. Garlington, driving a 2019 Nissan, hit the other driver’s 2018 Kia as it entered the northbound lane of U.S. 79, and both vehicles left the road.
Garlington died as a result of the crash, while the Magnolia woman was injured. Troopers described conditions at the time of the crash as clear and dry.
