  • A Nevada County man was killed near here Sunday night as the result of a car-train collision on a county road. The Arkansas State Police identified the dead man as Jimmie L. Guyton, Jr., 47, of Prescott, but gave no street address for him in the investigative report by ASP Trooper Christina Morris. Morris reported that Guyton was driving a 1990 Buick Century northbound on Nevada County Road 48, west of Prescott shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday, when the accident occurred. The report notes that Guyton allegedly failed to yield at a railroad crossing and his car was struck in the rear driver's side by an Amtrak passenger train. Guyton was pronounced dead at the scene by the Nevada County Coroner, according to Morris. The ASP reported that Guyton was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident and that he was the only occupant of the car. Weather conditions at the time of the accident were clear and dry, according to the ASP report. Guyton's body was taken to Brazzel/Cornish Funeral Home in Prescott. Funeral arrangements are pending at Brandon's Mortuary in Hope.
