Friday, November 4, 2011

A 22-year-old man from Elizabeth was injured Sunday evening and later died of his injuries in a one-vehicle accident near Viola.

A report from Sgt. David Small with Troop I of the Arkansas State Police said Shaun Esposito was given emergency treatment at the scene and then transferred to Baxter Regional Medical Center.

According to the report, Esposito was westbound on Highway 62/412 in Viola at about 7:45 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30, when the 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier he was driving left the highway and struck a private drive, causing the car to become airborne.

The vehicle continued overturning numerous times, struck a second private drive, rolling again and ejecting Esposito from the vehicle.

Esposito died about 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31.

The report does not indicate whether Esposito was wearing a seatbelt.
