An Arkansas man has been indicted on a manslaughter charge following the May 29 collision involving a bicyclist. James Goolsby, 63, of Murfreesboro Arkansas faces the manslaughter charge in connection to the death of John Charles Harris.
The indictments are formal charges and are not an indication of guilt.
The accident report showed that Harris, 56, was traveling west on FM 273 when the tractor trailer driven by Goolsby was headed north on Center Street. Goolsby’s truck went through the stop sign and struck Harris. Harris was pronounced dead on arrival at local hospital. The accident report said that the truck was going so fast that when Goolsby applied his brakes, the load of steel poles in the back broke free and struck the back of the truck.
Fannin County grand jurors returned indictments last week on 36 cases. The charges ranged from manslaughter to burglary.
