March 16 accident reports

No citations were issued following a hit and run in the Pilot Travel Center parking lot, 2010 West Clay Street, on Mar. 9.

According to an Osceola Police report, Larry Brown of Lake Village, Arkansas, was parked at Pilot in a 2018 International semi when an employee told Brown that he had parked incorrectly and needed to move. Brown pulled out of the parking spot and left Pilot, headed south on Interstate 35, pulling off at the rest area on southbound Interstate 35 to spend the night.

Officers were able to locate Brown at the rest stop, where he informed them he was unaware of having hit the another vehicle.

At Pilot, the driver of a 2019 Kenworth semi told officers that he had been in his sleeping compartment when he felt the truck rock. He noticed that Brown had struck the driver side of his vehicle causing damage to the mirror, front fender and a bend in the grill guard. Both the driver and a Pilot employee attempted to run after Brown, but lost him as he turned onto Interstate 35.

Damage is estimated at $500 to the 2018 International and $5,000 to the 2019 Kenworth.
