Comments Off

A Winslow man, 57, lost his life in a truck accident on Wednesday, when his Tyson feed truck overturned on Arkansas Highway 59, landing in an embankment on the highway.

The truck driver was attempting a sharp right-hand curve, but lost control of the 2004 Mack Truck he was driving. The truck overturned onto the driver’s side and went off the side of the roadway, according to Arkansas State Police.

Rescue from Siloam Springs Fire Department extricated his body from the truck where he had been entrapped by the steering wheel. He was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident.

The accident is still under investigation by Arkansas State Troopers.
