CONWAY — A driver was killed when his vehicle hit a tree on Stark Road on a clear, cold Sunday night, according to police. At approximately 8 p.m. Sunday, Conway police officers responded to a 911 call of a single-vehicle crash just south of Beechwood Drive, said Conway Police Lt. Suzanne Kelley-Scott.

Police identified the driver as Jeffrey Lund, 52, of Center Conway.

Beechwood is about a quarter-mile south of Route 113 (East Main Street) in Center Conway.

Police found that a white 2012 Infinity G37X sedan had struck a tree on the west side of the roadway. The male driver, who was the single occupant of the vehicle, was unresponsive, said Kelley-Scott.

“He was immediately cared for by members of Conway Rescue and Ambulance and was transported to Memorial Hospital, but his injuries proved to be fatal,” she said.

A portion of Stark Road was closed to through traffic in order to allow the Conway Police Department Accident Reconstruction Team to investigate the scene. The road was reopened at about 9:40 p.m.

"The cause of the accident is still under investigation,” said Kelley-Scott, who added that she didn’t know whether the victim was wearing a seatbelt.

Anyone with information about the accident should call Conway Police at (603) 356-5715.
