Lincoln Mother Killed in Head-On Collision
A Lincoln woman died after a car accident Sunday in Fayetteville, according to police.
Angela Strong, 26, died at Washington Regional Medical Center from injuries she sustained in a two vehicle accident on E. Huntsville Road near S. Jarnigam Street.
Nathan Sizemore, 18, of Springdale, was eastbound on Huntsville Road when his Toyota Solara crossed the center line and collided with a Jeep Liberty driven by Strong, according to a police report. Officers responded to the scene just before 2 p.m.
Strong was not wearing her seat-belt at the time of the accident, according to a police report. Strong’s 3-year-old son suffered a broken collar bone, said Sgt. Craig Stout with the Fayetteville Police Department. The boy was riding in a child’s safety seat in the backseat of the Jeep. Aaron McAbee, 21, who was riding in the passenger seat of Strong’s vehicle sustained serious leg injuries, according to Sgt. Stout.
Sizemore and his passenger, Cody Whittle, 20, of Springdale, were both taken to Washington Regional with serious leg injuries. Sgt. Stout believes Whittle sustained a torn aorta during the crash.
Neither Sizemore or Strong appeared to be speeding at the time of the accident, Sgt. Stout said. A witness told police Sizemore just drifted into oncoming traffic.
A blood sample from Sizemore will be tested to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash, according to Sgt. Stout. He also said the road was wet and possibly slick due to rain that afternoon.
