Victim Identified in Fatal I-40 Pedestrian Accident

A man killed while crossing Interstate 40 in Amarillo has been identified.

Amarillo Police identified the victim as 63 year old Larry Collard, who sometimes goes by the name of Darryl Wade Shaddon.

It was just after 5:00 Tuesday afternoon when Collard was struck by an oncoming pickup truck near I-40 and lakeside. It is unclear why Collard was crossing the highway. Eastbound traffic on I-40 was shut down for several hours while emergency crews cleaned up the accident scene.

Investigators continue to search for Collard's next of kin. Anyone with information is asked to call the Amarillo Police Department's Traffic Investigation Division at 378-4250.
