CARROLL COUNTY, Ark. — A Berryville High School senior was named as the victim in a fatal car accident that took place Sunday night, May 15.
Arkansas State Police say 18-year-old Matthew Jay Hausman was driving down County Road 601 in Carroll County when he lost control of the vehicle. The Police say the car went off the left side of the road, hit a tree and left the car overturned on its top.
Hausman was enrolled to attend North Arkansas College in Harrison and would've been a NAC pioneer in the fall.
Laura Cisco, Hausman's mother, says her son was interested in a variety of things like computers, music and gaming, whether it was playing or creating them. She says Matthew loved stories, mythology and wordplay, including puns. She says her son was creative with food and drinks, enjoying making new flavors but most of all her son loved helping people.
The Berryville School District expressed its condolences as it shared the news on Facebook and offered students and staff counseling if needed.
Matthew Hausman's obituary is available online with the option to share memories of Matthew through photos or videos, make a donation in Matthew's name, or plant a tree in his memory.
