Two Hot Springs Village residents were killed and two others from Hot Springs Village were injured Sunday afternoon when their car ran off U.S. Highway 65 in Chicot County.
State Police said the dead were John Thyfault, 80 and Lois Thyfault, 78, both passengers in a car driven by Edward Levy, 72. Levy and Sharon Levy, 63, were both hospitalized.
The police said the car was northbound about 2:45 p.m. when it veered off the road and hit a concrete divider, then went back across the northbound lanes, drove through a guard rail and into a ditch, where the 2003 Olds spun around before hitting a tree. Only Edward Levy was wearing a seatbelt.
