Man dies after motorcycle collides with car

Thursday, June 22, 2006

A Batesville man is dead after his motorcycle collided with a car on Highway 177 June 17.

Richard C. Brown, 52, of Batesville died when his 1995 L-12 Harley Davidson struck a 1997 Chevy Astro driven by Zoma Hargett, 73, of Calico Rock.

Hargett was heading south on State Highway 177 near Pineville when she left the east shoulder and struck a culvert, said Arkansas State Police Trooper David Small. Small said the vehicle rotated counterclockwise and went back onto 177, crossing into the southbound lane where she struck Brown.

After the impact, Brown's motorcycle came to rest on the east shoulder while Hargett's came to a stop on its left side in a southbound direction on the shoulder of the highway.

Brown was pronounced dead at the scene. Hargett was transported to Baxter County Regional Medical Center where she is not currently a patient. Charges are pending.
