Region 8 woman killed after Friday night accident.

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Around 9:15 Friday night, local authorities responded to an accident on Highway 63 around the exit about 3/4ths of a mile south of the Southwest Drive overpass.

According to State Police, 21 year old Kelly Carmel Elliot of Jonesboro, was going Northbound when her car ran into the left rear of a semi-trailer.

Her car then rebounded into the path of a Northbound pickup, where it spun around hitting both front and back of the pickup.

Elliot was ejected into the median, where another car also travelling Northbound was trying to avoid the accident, ran over and pinned her underneath the vehicle.

Rescue workers jacked up the car, removed Elliot and airlifted her to the Med in Memphis.

She died shortly after arriving in Memphis.

There were no other injuries in any of the other vehicles.
