Crash in Ripley County leaves one dead

RIPLEY COUNTY (FOX19) - An accident that involved a large truck and a car turned fatal Friday morning.

Around 9:50 a.m. the two vehicles collided on SR 350. When emergency crews arrived they found 28-year-old Tiffany Helms dead on the scene. Reports say she lost control of her car and began sliding across the road. She was struck by a Best Way Disposal Services truck which was driven by 59-year-old Michael Shelton.

The two vehicles became entangled, and skidded off the roadway. Then they traveled down a large ravine across a creek, and came to rest on a sparsely wooded embankment.

Shelton was transported to a local hospital but his injuries are unknown at this time.

SR 350 was closed until around 4:30 p.m. while the crash was being investigated.
