Robert Clayton Powell Killed in Truck Accident in Wichita County, TX
Wichita County, TX — May 18, 2023, Robert Clayton Powell was fatally injured due to a commercial truck accident at around 9:20 p.m. on U.S. 287.
According to initial details about the crash, it happened in the area of Harmony Road outside of Iowa Park. Authorities reported that the roads were wet at the time due to rainy weather.
