JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The roads have been a deadly place for the past few days here in Region 8. In just three days eight people have died from accidents. The cause of those accidents can be a number of things.
"Distractions can involve a phone or a child," said Paragould Police Officer Brad Snyder. "Anything can come into play operating a motor vehicle and people need to realize that those vehicles are four thousand pound bullets basically."
With more people out on the road this time of year, many drivers try to avoid the times where traffic is heaviest.
