A 20-year-old Wellington man was killed early Sunday morning in an accident that occurred in Fort Smith, Ark.

Authorities said Nathanael DeJarnett was “walking, or crossing the roadway” when he was struck by a 1992 Chevy Pickup. The Southwest Times Record reports that DeJarnett was struck in the center left-turn lane by a driver that was attempting to make a turn.

He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Police told the Times Record that there were witnesses that saw what happened.

51-year-old Vicki Fielding, of Fort Smith, was arrested around 1 a.m. on suspicion of reckless driving and driving while intoxicated. The case will be handed over to prosecutors for consideration of formal charges.
