Truck driver Michael Blaine Kirk arrest photo released
The Amarillo Police Department and the Potter County Sheriff's Office have released the arrest photo of Michael Blaine Kirk, the 22yr old man allegedly responsible for an accident that left three prominent Borger residents dead and one hospitalized. Kirk was driving a white flatbed Mack truck that struck the Lincoln Towncar occupied by David Dacus, his wife Cheryl Dacus, and Cheryl's parents Charles E. and Vonnie Williamson Washburn. Cheryl Dacus and her parents were killed in the accident. Kirk kept moving, fleeing the scene toward his home in Hereford. DPS officers intercepted him near Canyon Drive and McCormick Road. He was taken into custody and later charged with three counts of "Accident causing injury or death." No bond has been set. The Dacus family is well known in Borger as owners of Dake's Catering and for contributions to local society. An outpouring of support has welled up from the community.
