LITTLE ROCK, AR - A CATA bus driver has had the negligent homicide charges
against him dropped in a trial over the death of a pedestrian in November 2011.
James David Wright was walking east in a crosswalk on South Louisiana Avenue when Allen Mems, who was driving a Central Arkansas Transit Authority bus, stopped and made a left turn hitting Wright in the crosswalk
. Wright later died at the hospital from his injuries.
Mems and CATA still face a civil lawsuit from Wright family.
