PRAIRIE GROVE (KFSM) – One man is dead after a vehicle accident on Wednesday (Feb. 4) near Prairie Grove, deputies with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office say.

Authorities received a call about a vehicle accident with an unresponsive person inside at 3:15 p.m., but when they arrived, they determined the man had a “medical event,” pulled off the road and hit a tree, according to deputies. The incident took place on Greasy Valley Road southwest of Prairie Grove.

Deputies said the medical event caused the man’s death, not the vehicle accident. Very little damage was done to the vehicle, according to authorities.

When medical personnel arrived at the scene, the man was dead, according to deputies.

Authorities are not releasing the name of the man yet.
