Northwest Arkansas Times reported that a man accused of a hit-and-run accident that killed a biker pleaded guilty to the charges. The 40-year-old man was charged with negligent homicide in court for the death of a man earlier this year in an Arkansas motorcycle accident.

The young man died after his motorcycle collided with the accused man’s car after leaving a motorcycle rally. The Arkansas car accident victim was pronounced dead at Washington Regional Medical Center.

The driver of the vehicle pulled out of a parking lot without stopping, which didn’t give the motorcycle driver enough time to stop. Then the driver pulled back into the lot and fled the scene on foot, according to witnesses.

The Benton County Daily Record reported that a six-year-old elementary school student was hit by a bus on Monday and is recovering from a head wound. The Arkansas auto accident victim was in a group of eight other students who were dropped off along the bus driver’s normal route.

The 75-year-old driver followed all safety procedures, according to the school’s superintendant, but the student may have bent down in front of the bus out of the driver’s line of sight. When the driver saw the rest of the children on the other side of the road, he moved forward, causing the Arkansas auto accident.

The bus passed over the child, where something on its undercarriage caused the boy’s car accident injuries. The driver didn’t realize anything had happened and continued on his route. The driver is on a leave of absence after the Arkansas car accident.
