Hot Spring County, Arkansas — A local man from Malvern, 52-year old James Helms, was killed this past Saturday morning after a fatal single-car accident. It happened just after midnight early Saturday, March 1, along Highway 51 near Wells Amusements.
Helms was driving a Toyota south along Highway 51 that morning with two passengers, Crystal Morehead and Jesse Finley, when he lost control. His Toyota swerved off the highway and crashed into a nearby concrete culvert, which critically injured Helms.
He was declared dead a short time later and both Finley and Morehead were taken to Mercy Hospital with unknown injuries. Police said they’re not quite sure why Helms lost control of his Toyota, but they’re looking into it.
