Police Officer William McGary succumbed to injuries sustained the previous night when he was struck by an impaired driver at the intersection of Dave Ward Drive and Exchange Street.

Officer McGary was wearing a reflective vest while directing traffic at the scene of another accident when he was struck by a vehicle at about 8:00 pm. Officer McGary was pinned between his patrol vehicle and the subject vehicle. The driver who struck him was arrested at the scene and charged with several counts, including driving under the influence of narcotics.

Officer McGary was flown to a hospital in Little Rock where he remained in serious condition until succumbing to his injuries. He served with the Conway Police Department for just under two years.

The subject who struck Officer McGary passed away in November 2014 before going to trial.
