These decimated remains are all that is left after a one-vehicle wreck that occurred about three miles east of Salem along Highway 62 Sept. 29. Icapheen Martin, 73, of Salem was pronounced dead after police and emergency personnel found her 1988 Chevrolet crumpled against a tree around 1:10 p.m. Saturday. Arkansas State Trooper Ronnie Stewart said Martin was traveling around a curve when her vehicle left the road, struck a ditch and collided with the tree. Authorities said they suspect Martin lost control of the vehicle after suffering a heart attack while driving.
