Weekend traffic accidents in Faulkner and White Counties claim two lives.

A multi-vehicle collision in Vilonia resulted in the death of a Benton County woman.

Arkansas State Police say 25-year old Guadalupe Castorena, of Bentonville, died when she struck a vehicle that had slowed for turning traffic. Her vehicle then slid sideways and was struck by an 18-wheeler. Those two vehicles slid off the roadway into some trees causing the cab of the tractor trailer to slid onto the top of Castorena’s vehicle.

Authorities say the incident happened on the eastbound US Highway 64 Bypass at Stanley Road just after 5:00pm Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Arkansas State Police say a traffic accident in White County resulted in the death of a Lonoke County Woman.

Officials say 39-year old Kalena Norman, of Des Arc, was traveling northbound on State Highway 11 when she lost control of the vehicle traveling across the southbound lanes striking a tree.

Authorities say the accident happened just after 7:00am Sunday morning
