In a February Traffic Collision, a Murder Accusation Was Brought
Following a car accident, victims may face a variety of obstacles. These difficulties frequently include physical discomfort, mental troubles such as depression, and financial issues resulting from hospital costs or lost pay. Recovering after a vehicle accident can be especially difficult for some people. Those who have opted to sue the motorist who caused the accident, for example, may find themselves in a difficult situation if the other party wrongly accuses them of misconduct or if some crucial details of the crash are challenged.
False allegations made after a collision can have a substantial impact on the outcome of a court case. In some cases, persons who caused a tragic tragedy were able to avoid the consequences that they should have faced because they were able to falsely accuse victims of wrongdoing or bring forward false information that made them appear to be blameless.
This is why it is critical for auto accident victims to investigate the details of the accident as soon as possible and collect any relevant evidence, such as photographs, statements, and other proof. Furthermore, auto accident victims who elect to pursue legal action should be prepared for courtroom battles and have the confidence necessary to address these issues effectively.
We understand that life can be difficult for people who have been involved in a car accident, but these difficulties should never stand in the way of a victim’s quest for justice. A Pine Bluff man was detained on Monday and charged with second-degree murder in connection with a tragic traffic accident in February. According to a criminal information sheet, Andre Heard, 46, was booked into the adult detention center and is being detained on a $75,000 cash-only bond.
According to a probable cause affidavit from Pine Bluff Police Traffic Sgt. Travis Goforth, Heard was driving a 2015 Dodge Charger southbound on Cherry Street at a high rate of speed when his automobile collided with the driver’s side of a 2019 Ford Fusion driven by Cheryl Rhoades, 68, killing her.
According to Goforth, the region between 31st Avenue and Cherry Street is a residential area with a speed limit of 30 miles per hour. Heard’s automobile was moving at 106 miles per hour for 2.4 seconds before colliding with Rhoades’ vehicle. According to the criminal information sheet, heard has been convicted or found guilty of four or more felonies and should be treated as a habitual offender if convicted of this offense.
