Weaver, 21, of Central City, that was traveling north on 109 when, for an unknown reason, the vehicle left the roadway, struck a a tree and came to rest in the middle of the highway facing northeast.
Weaver was taken to Mercy Hospital in Booneville for treatement, according to the report.

Arkansas Game and Fish officials on Saturday afternoon confirmed Charles Roberts, 71, dead in Lake Jack Nolan. Roberts reportedly missed a flotation device after he had a medical incident in the lake, said Game and Fish Public Information Officer Keith Stephens.
Officials did not send Roberts’ body to the Arkansas Crime Laboratory because foul play was not suspected, Stephens said.
