A Cabot man died Wednesday from injuries he suffered after his motorcycle rear-ended a truck that had its tailgate lowered, authorities said.

Jeremy Kret, 31, was traveling west Sunday afternoon in the 3700 block of West Republican Road in Pulaski County when he rear-ended a Ford pickup that was attempting to make a left turn into a driveway, according to an Arkansas State Police crash report. The truck had its tailgate lowered at the time of the crash, which the motorcycle hit, police said.

Conditions were clear and dry at the time of the wreck, the report states.

Preliminary figures indicate at least 240 people have died in crashes on Arkansas roads so far this year.

    Why would the tailgate being lowered make any difference? Unless the truck pulled in front of him and he clipped the tailgate. Otherwise it sounds like he was following to close or not paying attention to the turning truck.
