Two pedestrians killed in accident


Two Pine Bluff men were killed Tuesday morning when they walked into the path of an oncoming vehicle.

Deaundre Washington, 27, and Dontrick Williams, 32, were walking near the intersection of Olive Street and 31st Avenue when they walked into the path of a northbound 2010 Dodge driven by Kendrix Collins, according to a report by Pine Bluff Police Department Lt. Donna Fratesi.

The road was clear and the weather dry at the time of the accident, according to Fratesi’s report.
