Clark Kent Simpson

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.
