MANILA, AR (KAIT) – A Region 8 man was killed and another man was seriously injured Wednesday morning in a head-on collision.

The crash happened just after 7 a.m. on Highway 18, east of Manila at Big Lake.

According to Trooper Brandon Bennett of the Arkansas State Police, 23-year-old Michael Inman of Leachville was westbound when his 2002 Mitsubishi crossed the center line and crashed head on with a 1997 Nissan driven by James E. Hill, 38, of Manila.

Bennett said Inman was pronounced dead at the scene by Deputy Coroner James Skinner.

Hill was airlifted to The MED in Memphis in serious condition.
