Wednesday, August 15, 2007

A one-vehicle accident claimed the life of a Monette teenager late Friday, according to a report from Arkansas State Police.

Seth W. Whited, 18, was driving north on Reeves Street in Monette at 10:47 p.m. when the 2005 Ford Explorer he was driving ran off the east side of the road, according to Senior Cpl. Terry Whitley. Whited then overcorrected, causing the vehicle to roll over and eject the driver, he said.

Whited was pronounced dead at the scene by Craighead County Deputy Coroner Kurt Beason.

Whitley noted seat belts were not in use at the time of the accident.
