Star City Man Injured in One Vehicle Accident

Officers from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department investigated a one vehicle accident Thursday morning on State Road 14 between County Roads 550 and 600 East.

Richard Stevenson, 59, of Star City told police that he was traveling eastbound on State Road 14 when, for some unknown reason, traveled into the westbound lane of traffic. He said he did not attempt to correct this action because he stated he would have lost control of the vehicle. Stevenson’s vehicle then left the north side of the roadway and collided with a pole and a mailbox before coming to rest on the side of the road.

Stevenson was transported by ambulance to Pulaski Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries. The vehicle, which was a total loss, was towed from the scene. There were no witnesses to the accident.
