Monticello woman killed in Sunday accident


A Monticello woman was killed Sunday in a one-vehicle accident on Florence Road three miles east of Monticello.

According to a preliminary report from the Arkansas State Police, Lisa Calhoun, 50, was westbound on Florence Road when she lost control of the 2005 Dodge Ram she was driving and the vehicle went off the road into a ditch, rolled, and struck several trees.

Drew County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Mitchell reported the vehicle then rolled back upright and came to rest in a ditch on the east side of the roadway.

The report indicated the accident occurred at 3:45 p.m., and it was raining and the roadway was wet at the time.

The death was the 76th on the state’s highways so far this year.
