Alicia woman dies in accident

A two-vehicle accident in the early morning hours on Saturday resulted in the death of an Alicia woman, according to Trooper Ronald Laso of the Arkansas State Police.

Twayna Barnes, 31, was killed at approximately 2:35 a.m. when the 1990 Chevrolet she was driving northbound on Highway 67 crossed the centerline and hit a southbound semi truck head on.

According to the report, the accident occurred 1.3 miles north of Swifton in Jackson County.

The driver of the semi, James F. Trainer, 56, of West Chester, Ohio, was not injured.

Barnes was recognized in May of last year as a Hometown Hero by Medic One after she stopped at an accident at the intersection of Highways 230 and 91. According to an article in The TD, her actions were probably life-saving for a young Westside student named Jordan Doss.

Services for Barnes were held Tuesday afternoon at Alicia Baptist Church.
