A Jefferson County man was killed in a one vehicle accident Thursday evening on Camden Cutoff Road near Watson Chapel.
According to a news release from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, 60-year-old Stephen L. Burns was ejected from his 1996 Ford F-150 pickup after leaving and re-entering the roadway several times before crashing.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Corporal Specyal Mills, who arrived at the scene of the crash at 6:08 p.m., said Burns appeared to be traveling northbound along Camden Cutoff Road when he lost control of his truck near the 5800 block.
Burns’ truck left the roadway and re-entered at least twice, according to Mills.
Troopers from the Arkansas State Police and members of the Watson Chapel Volunteer Fire Department assisted with the crash, which caused some congestion until authorities were able to clear the scene.
“Mills reported smelling a pronounced odor of intoxicants emitting from Burns’ body, pointing to alcohol consumption being the likely cause of the crash and/or a contributing factor to the crash,” according to the news release.
