A Crossett man killed Sunday evening in a motorcycle accident near the Union and Ashley County line was the third Crossett motorcyclist killed in less than a month, based upon a review of recent State Police preliminary accident reports.
Doyle Lemar Webb, 46, was traveling east on U.S. 82 in Union County when he lost control of his Kawasaki ZX 1400 motorcycle on a bridge, according to a State Police preliminary accident report.
Webb, 46, was thrown from the motorcycle which came to rest on the westbound shoulder of the highway.
The accident occurred at 6:18 p.m. The weather was clear and the roadway was dry, according to the accident report.
