Fatal Rollover Accident In Washington County

A 64-year-old Hartford man was killed in a
single-car rollover crash in Washington County’s Town of Polk late Saturday
morning. Sheriff’s officials say the man was heading north of State Highway 144
just south of the Arthur Road intersection when he went off the side of the
road. He reentered the road and crossed over into the southbound lane where the
car overturned. It came to rest on its roof. The man was ejected from the car
and died at the scene. Witnesses say prior to the accident the driver was not
speeding and was not driving erratically. It was the County’s 8th traffic
fatality of the year.
