Person in Ark. dies after tree falls on trailer

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Ark. (AP) - An emergency management official says a person has died in Arkansas after a tree fell on a camping trailer during a wintry storm.

Justin Drittler is the assistant director at the Office of Emergency Management in Pope County. He says the incident happened Friday morning just north of Dover and is likely related to the weather.

Pope County is under a winter storm warning until 6 p.m. Friday. The National Weather Service issued ice and winter storm warnings for much of Arkansas.

Authorities haven't released any information about the person's age or identity.

Dover is about 85 miles northwest of Little Rock.
