WASHINGTON COUNTY, AR-- A Springdale man is dead after the 18-wheeler he was driving flipped over in Washington County Thursday night.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, 56-year-old Jerry Wayne Harvey was southbound on Hazel Valley Road just before 11 p.m. Thursday pulling a trailer loaded with empty poultry containers in a Freightliner truck owned by George's, Inc.
