This just in from Little Rock police about an accident at 10:18 p.m. Sunday:

Officers worked a double-fatality accident at Chenal and Chenal Club. The two occupants of a single vehicle accident were killed when the vehicle they were occupying crashed into a tree and caught fire. .

The cause of the accident is unknown; however, preliminary information suggests that speed was a factor. The next of kin has not been notified and more details will be released as the information develops. 


UPDATE: The police have identified the victims as Ruth Bryant , 39, of 8 Chalamont, the driver of the 2010 Nissan Maxima, and her passenger, Sheila Graves, 36, also of 8 Chalamont. The police report indicates the women are sisters. The car crashed and burned after hitting trees in the island of the divided Chenal Parkway. The women died in the wreck. The impact was severe the police report said, with the engine pushed toward the passenger compartment.
