Wreck Kills Lowell Man

GATEWAY—A Lowell man was killed at 4:30 a.m. today when his steel-laden tractor trailer rig went out of control, overturned and slammed into a tree.

State Police identified the dead man as Desse Dwayne Fields, 22, 207 S. Jackson St., Lowell. The vehicle he drove reportedly was operated by Riggins Trucking Co. of Springdale.

State Trooper Keith Ferguson said Fields had turned east on Highway 62 from Missouri Highway 37 when the vehicle went out of control. It traveled 339 feet before overturning and crushing the cab against the tree. Fields' body was pinned in the wreckage for some time before being extracted by rescue workers from Rogers, Springdale and Seligman fire departments.

A utility pole was snapped by the crash and hot power lines were down in the highway until Carroll Electric Cooperative workmen reached the scene. Rogers and Seligman firemen stood by in case of fire.

Fields was born Jan. 5, 1956, in Santa Ana, Calif., the son of Desse McKinley and Loretta Johnson Fields. He moved to Springdale from California in 1967.

In addition to his parents he is survived by four brothers, Danny Fields and Dennis Fields of Rogers, David Fields of Lowell and Dwight Fields, address unknown; one sister, Mrs. Ronnie (Donna) Little of Bartlesville, Okla.; his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Ethel Johnson of Rogers and his paternal grandmother, Mrs. Bertha Fields of Springdale.

Arrangements are incomplete and will be announced by Sisco Funeral Home.
