According to an online Arkansas State Police report posted Thursday night, the crash happened on U.S. 67 North, south of Keller Lane around 1 p.m. Thursday.

A vehicle, driven by Rebecca Anderson of Marianna, crossed the center line and struck the left front of a second vehicle. The report does not name the driver of the second vehicle, who was killed in the crash, pending notification of next of kin.

Both Anderson and Beavers were taken to hospitals in Jonesboro and Memphis, ASP noted.
