Deadly Accident Claims the Life of Texarkana Man
Texarkana, Texas Police continue to investigate an accident that claimed the life of an Arkansas-side man Thursday afternoon.
The accident, which occurred in the 1600 block of North Bishop Road, claimed the life of Marvin Adams Jr., 32, of Texarkana, Ark.
Officers were dispatched to a report of a major crash at 1:22PM, where a vehicle had rear-ended a log truck. Investigators were able to determine that the log truck, driven by Bill Stephens, 71, of Springhill, Louisiana, had been stopped temporarily in the outside line of N. Bishop Street while Stephens went inside a business at that location.
After he reentered the truck and started pulling away, Adam’s 2008 Ford F150 truck struck the rear of the log truck.
Adams was killed on impact.
N. Bishop was closed to traffic for approximately two hours while officers conducted their investigation and the scene was cleared.
No charges have been filed in this case.
