Fertilizer Truck Headed To Texarkana Explodes Killing Driver

Remains of an individual suspected to be those of Randall McDougal, 63, of El Dorado, have been recovered from the site of an explosion that occurred earlier today along U.S. Highway 278 west of Camden east of the Nevada – Ouachita county line near Arkansas Highway 57. The Arkansas State Police has requested the human remains to be examined for positive identification by the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory.

State troopers have learned that McDougal was employed by Blann Trucking Company of Hampton, the owner of the vehicle that was carrying ammonium nitrate from El Dorado to Texarkana.

Area fire department personnel were notified about 6:40 AM today that the truck brakes of the commercial carrier truck believed to be driven by McDougal were on fire and the driver was attempting to extinguish the blaze.

The first fire department personnel on the scene had begun to evacuate residents who live in the area and reportedly witnessed McDougal return to the truck when it exploded.

The roadway remains closed as the result of a large hole caused by the explosion that stretches across the highway.

Prayer For Greenville P.D Who Has Lost One Of Their Officers (Rex)

Release From Greenville P.D:

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of police K-9 “Rex”. Rex’s health had been rapidly declining for the three months prior to his death after he was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Although Rex was prescribed with an aggressive medical regimen, his body failed to respond to the treatments. On March 25, 2019, the difficult decision was made to humanely euthanize Rex. Officer Robert Pemberton, who is the K-9 handler for the department, said: “It was apparent that Rex was suffering and his quality of life could no longer be preserved.” Rex, who was born in June of 2010, served as the Greenville Police Department’s K-9 since December of 2012. Rex passed away surrounded by his human family and he will be missed.

At&t Service Still Down This Morning Causing Frustration

At&t services are still down this morning. Hunt & Fannin Counties are among the few who are having issues.

The problem most people are having is the phone not placing outgoing calls. A lot of At&t customers are stating “it rings one time and just hangs up.” We have had a few of our other followers state they are with different carries and also having the issue, although the majority are saying At&t.

Randy Meeks with the Hunt County Sheriffs Office released a statement on Friday, stating this is affecting citizens from calling 911, if they had an emergency. At&t has been made aware of the problem and are working to get it corrected.

Remember if you catch yourself in an emergency and can not call 911, you can TEXT 911. It works the same as texting your bestfriend. A dispatch will message you back, once you request the help by texting the number “911”.

We are watching the outage maps and will update once services are back up and rolling for our area.
