A Eureka Springs woman was one of two people killed in a single-vehicle accident Thursday afternoon on Arkansas Highway 23 one mile south of the Missouri state line.

According to a preliminary report from the Arkansas State Police, 27-year-old Amanda Wade was a passenger in a 2000 Jaguar driven by Joshua Hilton, 27, of Washburn, Mo.

The report says the car was southbound on Arkansas 23 at 1:16 p.m. Thursday when it crossed the center line, ran off the highway on the east side of the road, and struck a fence and trees before overturning.

Both Hilton and Wade were pronounced dead at the scene, the report says.
