Six people -- four of whom were children -- were injured in a two-vehicle collision Friday morning, according to Arkansas State Police Trooper Jana Cordes.
Emergency personnel were dispatched at 7:44 a.m. Friday, May 11, to the scene of what was originally described as a "head-on" collision just east of Sugar Creek valley. Three children, all students at Pea Ridge schools, were taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where they were treated, then released.
The two drivers and a fourth child were sent by helicopter ambulance to a Springfield, Mo., hospital, according to police. All of the children, ages 8, 9, 11 and 12, were passengers in the eastbound truck.
According to police, Steven Sexton, 43, of Rogers, was eastbound on State Hwy. 72 with his four children when his vehicle was struck by a westbound vehicle driven by Kendall Shelley, 31, of Pea Ridge. According to police, Shelley was attempting to turn around when he struck the eastbound vehicle.
The incident is under investigation; charges are pending.General News on 05/16/2018
