WASHINGTON COUNTY (KFSM) – A Lincoln man faces a negligent homicide charge after his passenger died in a one-vehicle wreck Wednesday night in Washington County.
Kevin Cain, 40, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of negligent homicide, driving on a suspended license and reckless driving. He was released at 9:18 a.m. from the Washington County Detention Center without bond, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
A state police fatal crash summary states Cain was driving northbound along Arkansas 59 entering Washington County, when he veered to the right off into a ditch. Cain then over-corrected to the left, crossing both lanes of traffic where he then hit the embankment head-on. The truck then caught on fire, according to troopers at the site.
Danielle Bishop, 34, of Lincoln was a passenger in the truck. She died from her injuries.
Cain was transported to Washington Regional Medical Center with injuries. He was later booked into jail and released.
