JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Two people were killed and two others were injured in a one-vehicle rollover on Interstate 555 in Trumann on Sunday night.

According to Trumann Fire Chief Revis Kemper, the crash killed two people.

Arkansas State Police released a preliminary crash report late Sunday.

It states Marla Clements, 35, of Jonesboro along with an unnamed minor female died in the crash. Both were passengers in a vehicle headed north on I-555 around 6:15 p.m.

ASP states the vehicle was in the inside lane when a rear tire blew out. The vehicle overcorrected and made contact with a cable barrier.

This caused the vehicle to flip and three passengers were thrown from it, according to ASP.

Driver Justin Clements, 30, of West Memphis and another unnamed minor female from Jonesboro were injured and taken to Regional One Health in Memphis and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital respectively.

The condition of those injured is unknown.
