Traffic Fatality

A Sharp County man is dead following a Wednesday night traffic accident.

Arkansas State Police say 76-year old Larry Ratliff, of Hardy, was northbound on U.S. Highway 63 when he lost control of the GMC pickup leaving the roadway.

Authorities say the truck skidded sideways into a ditch causing it to roll over ejecting Ratliff, before striking several small trees.

Police say the accident happened at 7:45pm in Williford.
