Trooper Clark Simpson was killed when his patrol car was struck from behind by a tractor trailer on I-40 as he was completing a traffic stop.

He had pulled over a tractor trailer for speeding and had issued the driver a summons. Trooper Simpson remained behind the truck with his lights activated as it accelerated on the shoulder to pull into the travel lane. As Trooper Simpson pulled into the travel lane behind the truck another tractor trailer rear-ended his patrol car.

Trooper Simpson had only served with the Arkansas Highway Patrol for seven months.

I was a dispatcher that night and had just came to work the midniht shift! I will never forget getting a call of an accident on interstate and Clark was on duty and tried to reach him to go to the accident! The phone rang and Lt. Steve Gray at the time ask me was anything going on and yes we have an accident and can't make contact with Clark (all of a sudden it just came over me) I said Steve I hope Clark is not involved! I dispatched some other officer's to the Interstate and sure enough it was Clark! I too new Clark but he was new to our area so I didn't know him well but I will never forget that night! RIP Trp. Clark Simpson!
