Jacksonville man killed in weekend traffic accident

A Jacksonville man died Sunday in a head-on collision on Interstate 440.

Brian A. Ott, 34, was driving a 1998 Chevrolet pickup west in the eastbound lane on I-440 near the 10 mile marker at 10:35 p.m., according to a preliminary accident report from the Arkansas State Police.

Ott’s vehicle struck another vehicle head on, then hit a concrete barrier before it came to a stop. The driver of the second vehicle — Brian Whitley, 29, of North Little Rock, driving a 2005 GMC Yukon — was not injured.

The weather was clear and the roadway was dry at the time of the accident.

The death was the 427th on Arkansas roadways this year.
