Driver Sinks Truck in Creek, Then Flees on Foot

April 28th, 2013 by

z

038Around 10:45, Saturday, Drew County Sheriff’s deputies were notified of a Ford pick-up that didn’t stop at the intersection of HWYs 35 and 425, but instead drove off into the nearby cattle field.

The driver of the vehilce, attempted to get out of the pasture, but was only able to “cut donuts,” because of Saturday’s heavy rain, before driving the pick-upĀ into the creek that runs through the property.

Shortly after they arrived at the scene, officers heard a report of a vehicle with that license plate, driving recklessly in Cleveland County.

DCSO deputies andĀ Arkansas State Troopers assisted with traffic, while Dan’s Wrecker removed the vehicle from the creek and the field.

The driver reportedly fled on foot from the scene of the wreck.

  1. A CONCERNED CITIZEN says:

    IT’S A SHAME HOW MANY WRECKS THAT HAVE BEEN HERE SINCE THEY PUT THE NEW ROAD IN. I’M JUST THANKFUL THAT NO ONE WAS COMING DOWN 425 AT THE SAME TIME. I JUST HOPE I DON’T EVER HEAR OF SOME INNOCENT PERSON OR FAMILY GETTING KILLED AT THIS SITE. THE PERSON THAT WAS DRIVING THIS TRUCK NEEDS TO THINK GOD THAT HE OR SHE IS STILL ALIVE. THERE NEEDS TO BE A CAUTION LIGHT OR SOMETHING TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN.

  2. Edie says:

    there have been several wrecks at the spot & why the hwy dept won’t put some rows of wake up strips down is beyond me—

  3. Ms. Sharon says:

    Edie that is exactly what I said the first time they had a wreck. It seems to be working at the end of 35 West.

  4. Dollar Bill says:

    All the wrecks there have been because of driver errors. This spot is no different the the two at the ends of 530. The highway dept can’t put flashing lights at every intersection. Just use caution and good driving skills is all it takes.

  5. Vibrante says:

    I think the there is plenty of warning signals of the approaching stop sign. There are flags, warning signs, & stripes in the road & a stop sign at the end of the road. So it seems to me more drivers need to slow down and pay attention to the road signs & warnings. Im just saying

  6. Tim says:

    you cant blame the system for people being idiots. i was young and stupid once too, but my mistakes were the result of poor judgement and bad decisions. not the governments inability to make everything idiot proof.
