Arkansas Woman Killed In Accident
A 50 year old woman from Salem, Ark. was fatally injured in a vehicle accident last Tuesday, August 6, just east of the Eureka city limits on 54 Highway.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Anita Lucy was traveling eastbound on US 54 in the outside (south) lane leaving Eureka and was attempting to pass a truck tractor and trailer that was in the inside (north) lane, also traveling eastbound. Lucy left the roadway, going onto the gravel shoulder before overcorrecting. Her vehicle then crossed the eastbound lane, the center line and into the westbound lane. A semi was traveling westbound and tried to avoid Lucy’s vehicle but struck her vehicle (a 2005 Chevy passenger car) on the passenger side.
