On Friday, October 1, a woman was struck and killed by a vehicle as she attempted to cross the 2600 block of Pike Avenue in North Little Rock.
Officers responded to a call around 7:33 p.m. Friday evening, according to North Little Rock police. When they arrived, they found the woman, 45-year-old Regina Nolley, lying on the ground. Nolley was pronounced dead on the scene.
The driver of the vehicle was traveling northbound as Nolley was crossing the roadway. The driver was uninjured, and no charges have been filed at this time. Both driver and vehicle remain unidentified.
The police investigation for this incident is ongoing, and it’s unclear what caused the accident and Nolley’s death. Pulaski County, which includes North Little Rock, is one of the most dangerous counties in Arkansas with the highest number of fatal highway crashes per year.
However, car accidents can occur anywhere for a number of reasons, such as bad weather, poor road quality, or driver error like distracted driving or speeding. Simple mistakes can, unfortunately, lead to tragic fatal accidents.
