Weekend accident leaves two dead
Two people were killed Saturday in a traffic accident on Arkansas Highway 187 west of Beaver.
According to a preliminary report from Arkansas State Police Trooper Drew Widner, Jeffery James Schneider, 53, of Omaha was riding a 2000 Yamaha motorcycle westbound at 3:06 p.m. Saturday when he crossed into the eastbound lane while negotiating a curve. Schneider overcorrected, laying the motorcycle on its right side. The motorcycle’s rear tire struck the front bumper of an eastbound 2008 Dodge, causing the motorcycle to rotate counter-clockwise.
Schneider and his passenger, Laurie Ann Schneider, 52, of Omaha, were killed.
The driver of the Dodge was not identified in the state police report.
