SHERWOOD, Ark. — Sherwood police confirm they have arrested 51-year-old Cecil Daren Ferrell, who is also known by "Slick," in connection to a fatal hit-and-run that happened in July 2019.
Police have been looking for the person who killed 59-year-old cyclist John Mundell since a car hit him from behind on July 18, 2019. He was transported to UAMS where he died from his injuries.
Police say that Ferrell was wanted for negligent homicide and causing an accident that resulted in injury or death, both felonies.
The investigation led investigators to a video of a 2001 to 2006 year model, silver or gray, Hyundai Elantra GT, four-door hatchback. The vehicle could have damage to the front passenger side.
A 2001 Hyundai Elantra with similar damages as shown in the video has been seized by police. Ferrell is the owner of the vehicle, but it has not yet been confirmed it's the same vehicle from the video.
John's wife, Kimberly Mundell, said a break in the case has left her with mixed emotions.
“It does mean that I have to go back and reprocess that last five months in a whole different light. So, that’s been tough," she said.
But she hopes this person will come forward with some information.
"I would encourage you to do the right thing," Kimberly said. “If it is the right person or if it’s somebody else, there’s still some questions of why…why did you not stop that night?”
