The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle crash that claimed the life of a Little Rock woman Tuesday.
Cindy Oliver, 38, of Little Rock died at Riley Hospital from injuries she sustained in a crash at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Highway 39 North and Highway 854, formerly known as John C. Stennis Drive.
Three other people were injured in the wreck, including Katie M. Anthony, 49, of Meridian, who was driving a 1998 Chevrolet, traveling north on Highway 39. Anthony was transported to Rush Foundation Hospital.
Timothy R. Strebeck, 17, of Little Rock, was driving the 1984 Chevrolet in which Oliver was a passenger. Officers said the car was traveling east on Highway 854. Strebeck was treated and released from Riley Hospital.
Also injured was Kayla Oliver, 15, of Little Rock. She was airlifted to University Medical Center in Jackson.
The vehicles collided at the intersection, according to a report filed by Trooper Mike Cain of the highway patrol, but the incident is still under investigation.
