Two-car accident sends two to hospital


A two-car accident Monday afternoon at the intersection of the Martha Mitchell Expressway and Walnut Street sent two people to Jefferson Regional Medical Center for minor injuries.

Liasha Howard was traveling east on Martha Mitchell in a Chevrolet Malibu at around 4:15 p.m. when she collided with a 1994 Honda Accord driven by Daniel Girgenis, who was making a left turn off of the expressway onto southbound Walnut Street, according to Pine Bluff Police Department spokesperson Regina Vontunglen.

Howard, whose vehicle ended up on its side, was cited by PBPD officers for failure to yield to a traffic safety device.

Vontunglen said that Girgenis suffered a deep cut to his head and was transported to JRMC by a friend.
