Texarkana Texas Police are investigating a deadly crash which happened on North Stateline Avenue around 8:45 Thursday night.

Officers say Marvin Weaver, 68, of Texarkana Arkansas, was trying to cross the road in a wheelchair when he was struck by an SUV driven by Tina Turner, 69, of New Boston.

Turner told investigators she could not see Weaver until the car in front of her suddenly swerved to avoid him, leaving him directly in the path of her vehicle with no time to stop.

Weaver died from his injuries on the scene. His body is being sent to Dallas for an autopsy.

No charges have been filed at this time. Police ask anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact TTPD at 903-798-3116.
