Saturday, October 9th was a beautiful, warm, fall day in Harrisburg, AR. Mike Hamrick, 60, was in the yard at his home located along Arkansas state highway 14. We’re not sure what he was doing, it’s irrelevant to this story. We do know however, around 2:15 pm a big-rig truck was traveling east along Hwy 14 when the right rear tires and wheels of the trailer separated from the trailer and struck Mr. Hamrick killing him.
