One vehicle landed on its top, while a second came to rest on its side following a collision Wednesday afternoon west of Mountain Home. The vehicle coming to rest on its side then caught fire. Both drivers were taken to Baxter Regional Medical Center (BRMC), according to a report from the Mountain Home Police Department.

The report indicates the accident happened when 76-year-old Martin Vaughn of Elizabeth pulled onto U.S. Highway 62/412 and into the path of a vehicle driven by 27-year-old Daniel Adams of Mountain Home traveling east.

The impact caused the vehicle driven by Vaughn to overturn and land on its top in the west-bound lane of traffic. Adams’ vehicle flipped on its side and came to rest facing west before catching fire. Responding officers were able to extinguish the blaze.

Vaughn was transported by ambulance to BRMC for treatment of what were described as “suspected serious” injuries. Adams was transported to BRMC by private vehicle for treatment of possible injuries.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

Vaughn was shown at fault for the accident at 3:23 p.m. for failure to yield the right of way.
