Greenbrier woman dies following two-vehicle collision

A Greenbrier woman died in a local hospital on Saturday of injuries sustained in a May 23 two-vehicle accident at the intersection of U.S. Highway 65B and Interstate 40 in Conway.

According to a fatal crash summary released by Arkansas State Police, around 10:27 a.m., Jim Dunbar, 84, of Ash Flat, was attempting to enter I-40 when he made a left-hand turn into the path of an oncoming 2010 Mazda MZ3, driven by Jessica Wright, 23, of Cabot.

The Mazda reportedly struck the side of the Toyota, where Wandean Garrison, 77, was riding as passenger.

Neither Dunbar nor Wright were injured in the accident. Garrison was transported to Conway Regional Medical Center, where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Conditions at the time of the collision were noted as clear and dry.
