When deputies with the Bandera County Sheriff's Office arrived at the scene, Clark was pinned in his vehicle with no discernable pulse. Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Lynn Holt pronounced him dead at the scene.
BCSO Deputies JJ Martinez and Cpl. DJ Nowlin assisted with the accident along with two game wardens.
Troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety continue with the investigation.
