How’d this happen?

Officers with Arkansas State Police Troop D and the St. Francis County Sheriff’s Office look over a bridge railing at a car that ran off the bridge on Highway 70 east of Widener Thursday afternoon. Officials at Troop D this morning identified the driver as Jeremy McEwen, but said the accident report was not yet available. According to officers at the scene, McEwen did not appear injured in the accident. McEwen was able to climb out of his car and was waiting on officers when they arrived. McEwen reportedly told officers he had fallen asleep and awoke as his car was traveling down the embankment. Photo Fred Conley.
