UPDATE: LRPD spokesman Eric Barnes provided this additional information at 9:14 a.m. today, which includes news that two people died in the crash.
As many of you know, it will take several days to complete the accident report by reconstruction officers since they have to evaluate measurements from the scene. Below is information we have at this time to confirm.
On June 17th, 2022, just before 9: 15 p.m., Little Rock Police Department officers responded to a vehicle collision in the area of 12th Street and Rodney Parham Road. Citizens reported two vehicles were involved in this collision, and two occupants were trapped inside one of the vehicles. After the collision, the vehicles came to a rest on the building at 7400 Kanis Road. MEMS responded to the scene to provide medical treat to all involved; however, the driver and passenger of a Mercedes-Benz were pronounced as deceased on scene by medical personnel.
Accident Reconstruction Officers responded and began taking measurements and evaluating the scene. Preliminary information obtained by investigators indicates both vehicles were traveling westbound on 12th Street when the Mercedes-Benz lost control and struck a Dodge Avenger, resulting in both leaving the roadway.
The Driver of the Mercedes Benz has not been positivity identified and was transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for positive identification. The Passenger in this vehicle has been identified as Larry Brewer, 47 years old, of Conway, AR.
Police said Tavarne Williams, 43, driver of the Dodge Avenger, received medical treatment but injuries were not reported to be life threatening
