Emmet man dies in ATV collision

A south Arkansas man driving an all-terrain vehicle was killed Tuesday after driving onto a federal highway.

Travis Loe, 82, of Emmet, died as a result of injuries suffered following the Oct. 4 crash on U.S. Highway 278 in Rosston.

According to an Arkansas State Police preliminary fatal crash summary, Loe pulled out of a private driveway on a 2011 Polaris and was struck by a 2008 Toyota Rav4 traveling east on the highway. The report does not name the driver of the Rav4, nor does it indicate whether the Polaris that Loe was driving was a four-wheeler or side-by-side.

The accident happened at 11:47 a.m., and Loe was transported to Baptist Health Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at 1:41 p.m., according to the report. His body was being held at the hospital morgue.

The weather was clear and the roadway was dry, according to Trooper Jake Price, who investigated the accident.
