Fatal Two-Vehicle Accident on Highway 12 and Regional Boulevard
I have been meaning to blog about this location for several weeks now. My wife and I live in Cave Springs and we travel highway 12 often. Every time we round the curve right before the turnoff to the airport I always think this is a little bit dangerous. Also, when you’re coming north from the airport, every time I turn onto 12 from Regional Boulevard, I think I hope no one pops around that curve going very fast. It is a tough area for driving. As our area grows, more and more people will be going to the airport and leaving the airport. We should all slow down a little in that area so another wreck doesn’t happen.
The details of this wreck are truly sad. According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Steven M. Homewood, age 52 , of Huboldt, Kansas was killed after his northbound truck ran a stop sign at Arkansas 12 and Regional Blvd. and struck the passenger side of a car driven by George K. Black of Westville, Oklahoma. The vehicles both overturned. Mr. Black and his passenger Karen J. Heath were taken to Northwest Medical Center – Bentonville. Apparently, Ms. Heath was in critical condition.
