Hardy man dies in wreck

Thursday, February 7, 2002

A Hardy man was killed Feb. 2 when his pickup truck overturned less than two miles from his home.

According to Trooper Ronnie Qualls of the Arkansas State Police, Brian E. Taylor, 23, of Hardy was northbound on Highway 175 near C.C. Road in Wirth when his 1995 Ford pickup left the road, crossing the oncoming lane, then returned to the road before leaving the road again on the right side.Qualls said it appeared Taylor overcorrected, sending the truck into a roll before coming to rest on its top in a ditch.

Taylor was found approximately 50 feet from the vehicle. Qualls said there was no indication Taylor was ejected, indicating he somehow managed to extract himself from the wreckage.

Deputy Coroner Bob Booth pronounced Taylor dead at the scene of the accident.
