SPRINGDALE — The death of 56-year-old Judy Ann Pannell of Harrison is being attributed to an undisclosed medical condition she was suffering from at the time of her death.

Arkansas State Police Trooper Jason Davis says Pannell’s vehicle was discovered Tuesday, Sept. 25, by a farmer working in his field off Interstate 540 near Springdale.

Pannell, who had been an LPN in the northwest Arkansas area for 15 years, was reportedly driving southbound on Interstate 540 when she experienced a fatal medical event.

Pannell’s vehicle subsequently left the road near the Elm Springs exit and drove over a fence before coming to rest in the field.
