Couple Arrested After Wreck Kills One Child, Injures Two Others

LOWELL (KFSM) — A Springdale woman and her husband face child endangerment charges after a deadly wreck took the life of her 9-year-old daughter.

Kahlyn, age 9, Madelynn, 4, and Brooklyn, 6, were injured in a wreck on Sunday. Kahlyn later died at the hospital.

According to Benton County sheriff's deputies, Sabrina Crowe and her husband, Nathaniel Clark, were intoxicated when they left Beaver Lake on Sunday (June 17) and Crowe crashed their pickup into a tree along Cow Face Road.

Crowe's oldest daughter, Kahlyn, 9, was pronounced dead at the scene. Medical personnel were unable to revive her, deputies said.

"(Kahlyn) loved art. She loved to dance. She loved music. We love her so much," said Levi Crowe, the biological father of the three children injured in the wreck.

The other two girls -- Madelynn and Brooklyn -- were air-lifted to Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.

Madelynn, 4, suffered brain bleeding in the accident. She was listed Monday (June 18) in critical condition at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.

"She is fighting. We are praying for her. She is doing okay at the moment. We just need prayers," Levi Crowe said.

Brooklyn, 6, received non-life-threatening injuries.

Clark, 29, and Crowe, 31, also received non-life-threatening injuries.

Crowe and Clark had been drinking on a boat earlier Sunday and were on their way to Avoca when Crowe crashed, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Crowe initially told police Clark was driving because she was scared, but later admitted she was driving, according to the affidavit.

Crowe faces three felony counts of endangering the welfare of a minor and one felony charge of negligent homicide.

She also faces misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.

Clark was arrested on three felony counts of endangering the welfare of a minor and hindering apprehension or prosecution.

Crowe was being held Tuesday (June 19) at the Benton County Jail on a $75,000 bond, while Clark is free on a $7,500 bond.

The pair have hearings set for July 23 in Benton County Circuit Court.
