Two Cherokee Village residents die in one-car crash

Friday, March 24, 2006

Two Cherokee Village residents were killed in a one-car wreck on Highway 175 in Fulton County March 18.

Kevin John Lamb, 39, was driving a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer west on Highway 175 around 2:10 a.m. with Minnie Bernice Rudd, 45, in the passenger side of the vehicle, said Cpl. Kenneth Foley of the Arkansas State Police.

When Lamb crested a hill on a curve near the intersection with Absaroka Road, the vehicle left the north side of the road and traveled more than 300 feet. The vehicle then struck several trees and overturned onto its top, partially ejecting Lamb and throwing Rudd from the vehicle, Foley said.

Both died at the scene. Neither Lamb or Rudd was wearing seatbelts, Foley said.
