Kelley died as a result of a motorcycle crash in Adair County, troopers reported. He was hospitalized after the crash, which happened about 8:30 p.m. Thursday on U.S. 59 about 4.5 miles north of Stilwell. Kelley was taken to a hospital in Fayetteville, Ark., where he died about 11:35 p.m. Thursday from massive head and internal injuries, the patrol reported. Kelley was driving south when he struck a pickup driven by Wanda Ramona Farrington, 66, of Stilwell, then hit a mailbox and a stop sign. The motorcycle overturned in a ditch.
