One was injured following a Labor Day motorcycle accident. According to ASP Trooper Bo Hayes, the accident, involving two motorcycles, occurred just before 9:30 a.m. Monday morning.
Kyle Forte, age 30 of Texarkana, was riding a 2005 Yamaha when he pulled off the road near the Hwy 375/71 junction near Potter to wait on his mother, Margaret Forte, who was driving a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle. Margaret, age 55, lost control of her bike as she pulled up behind Kyle and struck him in the rear sustaining injuries to her hip. Kyle was uninjured in the accident. Margaret was transported to Mena Regional Health System.
Hayes said both were wearing helmets during the time of the helmet and contributed their use to injuries not being more extensive.
