05/29/17  One Vehicle Accident Near Bearden


A car was found in the ditch near some railroad tracks just outside Bearden Saturday morning. According to a Ouachita County Sheriff's Department supervisor at the scene, it appeared as though the vehicle was headed toward 79-B on a county road and the driver somehow missed the crossing and went left of the crossing instead, crossing the tracks and into the ditch.

The driver was evidently not able to get the vehicle out of the ditch and left it there. The Ouachita County Sheriff's office got a few calls concerning the abandoned vehicle, including one from Union Pacific.

A wrecker removed the vehicle and it was impounded until such time as the owner or driver comes forth to give a report as to what occurred. The vehicle was registered to Tina Dillworth in Camden.
