Update:
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Two people killed in a Thursday morning accident on a local interstate have been identified.

The Arkansas State Police preliminary accident report identifies Margaret D. Williams, 23, of Little Rock, as a passenger in a 2008 Chrysler Sebring that was headed west on I-440 around 7.

The report, which lists the driver as Romel Edwards, 25, of Little Rock, states that his vehicle was traveling in the right lane when he abruptly changed lanes to take an exit to Interstate 530 South.

The car's passenger side then slid into a concrete traffic barrier and the vehicle flipped onto its top.

The report noted the road was wet.
