|Newellton man killed in Clayton accident|
A Newellton man was killed in a two-vehicle accident at the Hwy. 15/U.S. 65 intersection at Clayton Tuesday afternoon.
John W. Hogue Jr., 78, was killed when his Lexus was hit by a gravel truck owned by Grady Stephens of Gilbert. The driver's name was not available at press time.
Hogue was traveling south on U.S. 65, while the gravel truck was heading north through Clayton on Hwy. 15.
The gravel truck and Hogue's car collided and then traveled about 100 feet before coming to rest in a ditch.
According to a Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office report, a call was received at 4:24 p.m. concerning the accident at the caution light in Clayton.
Georgia Dison from Coroner's office pronounced Hogue dead at the scene.
Hogue's body was taken to Jackson for an autopsy.
Clayton Police Chief Clarence Skipper said Hogue either ran through the stop sign or stopped and proceeded out on the highway but apparently did not see the truck.
Skipper said the accident is the fourth or fifth since that highway was four-laned.
Mayor-elect Rydell Turner said he has talked with state highway officials about the intersection, which he thinks is dangerous.
"We have four or five people a week turn left toward Ferriday going south in the northbound lane," Skipper said. "It needs to be looked at. Something is definitely not right about it. We didn't have that many accidents there when we had the stop sign there when it was a two-lane."
The Clayton Police Department is continuing an investigation into the accident, said Skipper.
