An El Dorado man was killed Friday afternoon in a wreck at the intersection of Mount Holly and Agnes roads.

According to a preliminary accident report by the Arkansas State Police, Jeremy Vines, 42, was killed shortly after noon on Friday in a single-vehicle accident.

Headed west on Mount Holly Road in a 2000 Honda CRV, Vines’ vehicle left the roadway at about 12:05 p.m., according to the report. It skidded approximately 266 feet before rolling over and coming to rest on its roof.

The report says Vines was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene of the accident.

Conditions were reportedly clear and dry at the time of the wreck.

This was the 283rd fatal car wreck to happen on an Arkansas highway so far this year, and the second this month to take the life of an El Dorado resident.

On June 8, Murphy J. Aaron, Jr., 34, of El Dorado was killed in a head-on collision on Highway 274.

Several other local residents have lost their lives on the road this year.

On March 27, Joanna McJunkin, 35, of McRae was killed in an accident and El Dorado’s Shawn Strickland, 25, later died as a result of injuries he sustained in the wreck as well.
