The incident occurred near the intersection of Arkansas State Highway 11 and Rayburn Road, northeast of Little Rock in Walker Township, just before noon, according to spokespeople from the Arkansas State Police.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. His passenger, a 26-year-old woman from Searcy, was seriously injured and transported to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Medical Center in Little Rock.
The weather conditions were clear, the roadway was dry and in good condition, according to reports.
