Rector Woman Airlifted Following Car Crash
Debra Gordon, of Rector, was airlifted to a Jonesboro hospital Wednesday morning, after a vehicle driven by her husband, Joel Gordon, crashed around 11 a.m. north of Pollard.
Reports indicated the couple was headed southbound on Highway 139, near the Arkansas and Missouri state line when the mishap occurred. Apparently, the vehicle crossed the road and plowed into a bridge embankment which caused it to spin into the eastside ditch. The Pollard and Piggott fire departments responded to the scene and used the jaws of life to free the couple. Debra was transported from the scene by air-evac helicopter according to Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller.
