No charges for Arkansas trooper in fatal Hot Springs crash

     (AP) – Arkansas State Police say a prosecutor has decided no

charges will be filed in connection with a fatal auto accident that killed two

people and injured a state trooper.

     State police say Prosecuting Attorney Terri Harris notified police commanders

on Tuesday that no charges will be filed regarding the Oct. 10 collision on

Highway 70 that killed 26-year-old Cassandra Marie Braun and Tavon Desean

Jenkins – both of Hot Springs – and injured Trooper Brian Burke.

     Burke remains on medical leave as a result of the injuries he suffered.

     Details of the crash have not been released and state police say they will now

begin an internal review to determine if the patrol car was being operated

within the department’s policies and procedures.
