Batesville man dies after accident in Cabot


A Batesville man was killed last week after a two-vehicle accident in Cabot.

According to the Arkansas State Police Preliminary Fatality Report, Roland Wayne Hogan, 65,  died on Nov. 10 when his 2001 Jeep Laredo was struck by a 2020 Ford Explorer on Highway 5.

The driver of the Explorer, identified as Laiken Sloan May, 25, of El Paso, Ark., was also killed in the accident.

The report said the driver of the Explorer was traveling north when they apparently lost control of their vehicle, struck a guardrail, corrected, and crossed the center line, driving north in the southbound lane before striking Hogan’s southbound Laredo.

The weather condition was clear, and the road was dry at the time of the accident which was listed at 2:15 p.m.
