Rollover crash near Valley View slows traffic

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A woman escaped serious injury Thursday afternoon when her car flipped over on Southwest Drive.

The crash happened shortly after 2 p.m. near the intersection of Oak Park Drive, according to the Jonesboro Police Department's crash report.

Ewurama Armah, 22, told officers she was northbound when an older white Chevy pickup truck turned in front of her.

When she swerved to avoid hitting the truck, Armah's Pontiac Vibe crossed the center and both southbound lanes before leaving the roadway.

When the wheels struck the curb, the car overturned and slid before coming to a rest on its top in the outside southbound lane.

Armah complained of pain but refused medical treatment at the scene, according to the report.

Traffic was backed up while police and rescue crews worked to clear the scene.
