A sixty-one-year-old Van Buren man has died as the result of a two-vehicle accident Saturday on Interstate 40 at Mile Marker 9 in Crawford County, according to the Arkansas State Police.

The impact caused the Equinox to roll over, resulting in Clemon's death. Aherns and a passenger in her vehicle, 25-year-old Camila Capaci of Houston, were both taken to Mercy Fort Smith for treatment of unspecified injuries.

The time of the accident was listed as 5:50 pm.
