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.

    If justice is dealt equally the negligent homicide charge should get him 30 days (or less) jail time and a $1000.00 fine.
    This would be compared to the convictions (for the same charge) of former Arkansas State Police trooper Larry P. Norman (who also got full retirement with full benefits from the ASP) and former Bella Vista police officer (and current Sulphur Springs police chief) Coleman “Duke” Brackney.

    Lest we forget.
