Accident claims the life of ETX man


A horrible accident claimed the life of an East Texas man Friday night.

The accident happened around 11pm Friday in the parking lot of the Globe Inn Motel on Highway 80 in Longview.

Investigators say a 27-year-old Andy Ray Styker of Longview was working on a friends truck, when the friends foot slipped off the clutch of the truck. The truck then lurched forward and pinned Styker against an outside wall of the motel.

Judge Arthur Fort pronounced Styker dead at the scene. Police are continuing to investigate this accident.
