Tony Pyle, 54, who had only recently moved to Ore City from Arkansas, was pronounced dead at the scene of the head-on crash on Wisteria Street in front of the city cemetery, Awtry said.
The pickup driver, 32-year-old Ashley Alsobrook of the Ore City area, was not injured “that I know of,” Awtry said.
Her Dodge pickup was southbound, while Pyle, en route to Lake O’ The Pines, was northbound on a 1997 Harley-Davidson SS, said Awtry. The chief said he understood Pyle was killed instantly.
Police were notified of the crash about 7 p.m., said Awtry. As of Tuesday, no charges had been filed in the accident, he said.
