Girl dies of injuries sustained in crash

GAMALIEL, AR (KAIT) – A four-year-old girl critically injured in a car crash earlier this month has died.

Jeannie Kenney of Gamaliel died Tuesday at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.

The crash happened at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, on U.S. Highway 62, 7 miles west of Yellville.

Arkansas State Police say Kenney was a passenger in a 2005 Dodge Magnum driven by Juanita Arena, 77, of Gamaliel.

Arena was negotiating a left turn curve when her car lost traction on the wet, slushy pavement and skidded across the road and flipped over into a ditch.

Arena was also injured in the crash.  She was taken to Baxter Regional Medical Center in Mountain Home.
