Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Bikes, Blues and BBQ weekend was an easy ride for Carroll County, according to local officials.

Sgt. Brian Jones of the Eureka Springs Police Department reported there was only one minor accident in Eureka Springs over the weekend.

“It went good for us,” Jones said. “There were no fatalities in Eureka. We had a lot of people in town, and everything went smoothly. There was only one accident on Friday, and it was a one-vehicle accident.”

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, Berryville Police Department and Green Forest Police Department reported no incidents related to Bikes, Blues and BBQ over the weekend.

There were two fatal motorcycle accidents in Northwest Arkansas over the past week, although it’s unclear whether they were related to Bikes, Blues and BBQ. Randall Lee Howe, 65, of Charlotte, N.C., was killed in a one-vehicle accident Friday afternoon on Arkansas Highway 23 four miles south of Huntsville in Madison County. On Sunday morning, Mark E. Einder, 62, of Pelsor was kiled in a one-vehicle accident on Arkansas Highway 123 eight miles south of Mount Judea in Newton County.
