JONESBORO, AR - An automobile accident on Stadium Boulevard in Jonesboro claimed the life of a Trumann man Monday afternoon.

The accident happened just after 4 p.m., just south of the overpass south of the Arkansas State University campus.

Police say Jerry Ferguson, 46, died after his Chevy Blazer crossed the center line and side-swiped an SUV driven by a Brookland woman.  Ferguson's Blazer then continued into northbound traffic, colliding head-on with a flat-bed truck driven 40-year-old Daniel Robertson of Jonesboro.  Robertson was treated and released at St. Bernard's Medical Center.  Ferguson was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident also caused quite a traffic bottleneck along Stadium for several minutes.
