Man seriously injured when motorcycle and deer collide

Thursday, October 12, 2006

Steven Herron, 54, of Horseshoe Bend was seriously injured in a motorcycle wreck Oct. 3.

According to investigating officer James Davis, Herron was traveling west on East Church Street in Horseshoe Bend when the accident occurred.

Davis said Herron struck a deer and lost control of his motorcycle. He was thrown from the motorcycle and the bike landed in the gravel along the left side of the road.

Though Herron was wearing a helmet, he was seriously injured.

The Arkansas Emergency Transport Ambulance Service took Herron to the Fulton County Hospital and from there he was transferred by Air-Evac to another hospital.

The hospital would not release where Herron was sent. As of press time, his condition was unknown.

Kevin Farnes of Horseshoe Bend was arrested and charged with third degree domestic battery after an altercation at his residence Oct. 1.

According to arresting officer, Jim Griffin, Farnes's estranged wife arrived at his residence at 804 Parkway Lane and would not leave.

After speaking with her and demanding that she leave, Farnes allegedly grabbed her throat and pushed her down in attempt to make her leave. After realizing she had a contusion on her head from her fall, the victim contacted Horseshoe Bend authorities.

Farnes was released that same day after posting bond of $1,000. Farnes was given a Nov. 14 Horseshoe Bend court date.
