HUMNOKE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas State Police say two people have been killed in separate traffic accidents in Lonoke and Hempstead counties.

Troopers say 18-year-old Tiffany Paige Koonce of Hot Springs died Friday when she got out of a moving vehicle on State Highway 27 in Hempstead County near the Howard County line north of Nashville.

The reason Koonce left the moving vehicle was not immediately released.

Troopers say 24-year-old Kewon Jones of North Little Rock was also killed Friday when the vehicle he was driving crashed head-on into a tractor-trailer rig in Lonoke County.

A state police report says Jones was northbound on State Highway 165 near Humnoke when he attempted to pass another vehicle and collided with the southbound tractor-trailer.
