Deadly crash still under investigation

Thursday, December 13, 2007

A one-vehicle crash has claimed the life of a Brockwell man.

Johnnie Neal, 63, died after the vehicle he was driving left the road and struck a tree.

A report by Arkansas State Police officer Brandon Cook said the accident occurred about 2 p.m., Dec. 4 approximately three miles north of Oxford on Highway 9. According to Cook, Neal was driving a 1989 Chevrolet pickup southbound when he apparently lost control of the vehicle in a curve, left the road and struck a tree.

Cook said Neal was not wearing a seatbelt and that alcohol was not a factor in the wreck. The crash is still under investigation.
