Plainview pastor killed in motorcycle accident

PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) -

A Plainview pastor has died, killed in a motorcycle accident on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers say 54-year-old David Pollard was struck by a pickup while riding southbound along the west service road of Interstate 27 in front of Wendy's.

Pollard's 2007 Harley Davidson was struck by a 2006 Ford pickup. Police say the two vehicles collided when the pickup pulled out of a parking lot.

Plainview Police Capt. Manuel Balderas Jr. reports that Pollard sustained severe injuries. He was transported to Covenant Health Plainview by Plainview Fire Department EMS. He was later pronounced dead by Hale County Justice of the Peace Sheron Collins. Collins ordered an autopsy, which was performed Wednesday morning.

According to a Facebook post by the Caprock Plains Baptist Area, David Pollard served as Seth Ward Baptist's pastor for the past three years.

"David was a marvelous man who brought his family to Plainview several years ago from Farwell, where he was the ministry assistant at FBC Farwell," the post explains.

Once in Plainview, Pollard and his wife, Pamela, and their daughter Tori became members of the Seth Ward Baptist Church. Pollard was extremely active in the Children's Ministry at Seth Ward on Wednesday night, ministering to the children of the area, before becoming its pastor.

Pollard grew up in Cedar Hill, Texas.

A Go Fund Me account has been established to assist David Pollard's family. It can be found at: https://www.gofundme.com/pollard-family

We will update this story with funeral arrangements as soon as they are available.
