A man was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Pottsville late last month, the Arkansas State Police reported Monday.
Justin Chessher, 24, was driving a Suzuki motorcycle west on West Ash Street at Pisgah Road on July 27. About 4:53 p.m., a Chevrolet pickup entered the intersection after stopping at a stop sign. Chessher was traveling fast and struck the rear of the pickup.
He was taken to St. Mary's Regional Medical Center and pronounced dead.
A passenger on the motorcycle, Nellie Chessher, 22, and the driver of the pickup, John Bryant, 17, were hospitalized.
State police also reported Monday that a man had died in a single-vehicle crash in Jacksonville in June.
