A Bee Branch man was killed in a traffic accident last week.

Gary L. Meadows, 57, died in a one-vehicle crash on Highway 92, two miles west of Bee Branch on July 24, according to a report from Arkansas State Police Trooper Brian K. Johnson.

Meadows’ 1992 Chevrolet was westbound on Highway 92 when it went off the road and struck an embankment, the report said. The Chevrolet overturned and Meadows was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene by county Coronor Joe Tsosie.

Weather conditions at the time of the accident, which occurred about 1:45 p.m., were clear and the roads were dry, the report said. Meadows was not wearing a seat belt, according to the report.
