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.
