A Hot Springs man was killed early Tuesday in a one-vehicle wreck in the 1100 block of Highway 290, according to an Arkansas State Police preliminary fatal crash summary.
Javier A. Santos, 20, was reportedly westbound driving a 2008 Chevrolet Malibu around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday when he crossed the centerline into the eastbound lane and continued into the ditch on the eastbound side.
The Malibu collided with the ditch, causing the car to go airborne briefly, and then the car's front end collided again with the ditch bank, causing it to overturn. Santos was reportedly partially ejected through the car's sunroof. The car came to rest in the ditch on its driver's side.
Conditions were raining and wet at the time of the wreck, the report states.Local on 01/14/2020
