SEARCY COUNTY, TX — A motorcycle accident left one driver dead in Searcy County, Arkansas on Saturday, April 12th, 2014, according to a news report from Ozark First.
Representatives from the Arkansas State Police have identified 32-year-old Justin McCoy as the person who was killed when the motorcycle he was driving crossed into the lanes of oncoming traffic and collided head-on with another vehicle while driving on Highway 14.
Scene of the Accident
Justin McCoy was killed in the crash. The driver of the other vehicle was immediately unhurt after the accident.
The investigation is currently ongoing.
Any time an accident of this kind comes to my attention, I cant help but wonder why people allow the police’s report to be the final word in the accident, when most police officers are not trained extensively in accident investigation, and the tiny bits of evidence that largely go overlooked in initial cursory investigation. I always remind people that a police report is only part of the equation, and both parties involved are permitted to conduct their own investigation, or have a professional investigate it for them. The complete story is important for victims, and knowing the truth behind a crash can help tremendously.
