Roland man killed in head-on collision on Highway 10

Posted By on Thu, May 22, 2014 at 10:11 AM

Leroy Patterson, 84, of Roland died of injuries suffered about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday in a head-on collision on Highway 10 (Cantrell Road) near Johnson Ranch Road.

According to the police report, Patterson was driving westbound when an eastbound Pontiac driven by Amber Wells, 18, of Little Rock swerved into the westbound lane and collided with Patterson's Kia. Wells told police she'd swerved to avoid an eastbound white SUV, Suburban or Tahoe, traveling alongside her that swerved into her lane on the four-lane roadway.

CORRECTION:: A reader called to my attention, citing a State Police website, that Patterson was 84. The Little Rock police, who investigated the accident, gave a birthdate on its accident report distributed to media that made  him 19, as I originally wrote. I've now confirmed the age of 84 is correct. It was a typographical error, the LRPD says.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
