Local community in mourning after 4 die in car crash

Car wreck in Cabot leaves four people dead

CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) -- Four people have died following a wreck on Highway 67/167.

Tuesday afternoon Mandi and Alisca Oliver were driving in the northbound lane in Cabot on U.S. Highway 67/167, when they crossed the median, striking the truck of Larry and Kathryn Blue head on in the southbound lane.

Pastor Drew Glover at Grace Community Church in Ward said that members Mandi and Alisica Oliver were involved in several services.

“I believe they were on their way to the food industry Tuesday evening, and I think they were headed this way to serve.  They do that every Tuesday night.”

People at the church are having a hard time grasping this reality saying that had fallen in love with the people that they were, and there's going to be a big hole in the community.

The small town of Ward is in a state of mourning, about a mile away from Grace Community Church at
Action Wrecker Service the mourning is especially tough.  Daughter of Larry and Kathryn Blue, Bettina Boughter, never imagined her parents dying, much less in a car wreck.

“I travel that road every day.  I work in Little Rock, and I see at least one or two wrecks all the time,” said Boughter.  She added that moving on from their deaths is an impossible feeling.

“I can't get over this; it's my parents,”

Police are still investigating exactly what caused the crash.
