David Pollard, the “God-loving” pastor of Seth Ward Baptist Church in Plainview, Texas, died tragically Tuesday after he collided with a pickup truck while riding his 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle. He was 54.
Plainview Police Capt. Manuel Balderas Jr. said in a My Plainview report that at about 4:12 p.m., Pollard was struck by a 2006 Ford pickup, driven by Margie Copeland in the 1400 block of North I-27 as he rode his motorcycle. Copeland was reportedly pulling out of a parking lot when the collision happened.
The pastor suffered severe injuries and was transported to Covenant Health Plainview hospital where his wife, Pamela, works as a diabetes educator. It is unclear if she was at work at the time her husband was transported to the hospital but he was pronounced dead by Hale County Justice of the Peace Sheron Collins.
As local law enforcement officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident, Seth Ward Baptist Church remembered him as a man who loved God and “preached the Word.”
