Fatal Crash

A Caulfield man has died of injuries suffered in a crash at 9:50 a.m. Thursday on U.S. 62 just outside of Viola, Ark. in Fulton County.

Cpl. Jay Brian with the Arkansas State Police, Troop I in Harrison, Ark., reported the deceased, Samuel Kirkland, 23, was the driver of an eastbound 2015 Dodge Ram 3500 that rear-ended a 2016 Mack 700 truck.

No injuries were reported for the driver of the Mack truck, who was not identified.

The report shows weather was clear and the road was dry at the time of the crash.

Kirkland’s death marks the 290th traffic fatality this year in Arkansas, compared to 292 in the same time frame in 2018.
