A Springdale man was killed Monday afternoon after his car struck a tree on Wagon Wheel Road, according to police.

Edward Dewayne Jech, 63, was driving his 1999 Toyota Avalon along the 8600 Block of Wagon Wheel Road in Springdale, when his car struck a tree and rolled down an embankment, according to the Springdale Police Department.

Responding firefighters used the jaws of life to get Jech out of the vehicle and transported him to Washington Regional Medical Center in Fayetteville, where he later died.

The fatal crash is under investigation, but police have no reason to believe alcohol or drugs had any factor in the wreck, they said.
