PRESCOTT – A Saturday afternoon crash in Nevada County claimed the life of a North Little Rock woman. According to the preliminary report from the Arkansas State Police, Lizzie Knight, 76, of North Little Rock was killed.

State Police say Knight was a back seat passenger in a 2012 Buick traveling westbound on Interstate 30 at the 50 mile marker near Prescott. According to the investigation narrative, the Buick and a 2015 Mack truck were both traveling west when the Mack struck the car while attempting to change lanes. The Buick traveled into the median and began overturning, ejecting the victim, who was pronounced at the scene by Nevada County Coroner David Gummerson at 3:03 pm. The driver of the Buick, 54 year old Treva Cooper and the front seat passenger, Alisha Winkler, 51, both of Little Rock, were taken to Baptist Health System in Arkadelphia. Trooper Trevor Dew investigated.
