Motorcycle crash victim in critical condition

Saturday, October 6, 2012

A Holiday Island man injured in a motorcycle wreck late last week remains in critical condition this week.

Ernesto Negrette, 24, was at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Sonya Kullmann said.

Police reports showed he was critically injured in the accident that occurred on Wednesday evening, after he was thrown from his motorcycle on Highway 23 about 1.5 miles north of Eureka Springs.

According to police reports, Negrette lost control of his motorcycle at about 4:45 p.m. while making a left-hand turn.

He laid his motorcycle down on its right side and struck a curve warning sign before being thrown from the bike and down the highway embankment.

The Arkansas State Police said charges were pending against Negrette. However, no details of the charges were available by press time.

I am very sorry for Mr. Negrette; however, this town has become a motorcyle heaven and it seems that the police department ignores all of the noice and reckless, fast bikes.
