Death on Kanis Road termed an accident

Posted By on Mon, Dec 7, 2015 at 2:22 PM

Little Rock police today said the death of woman found fatally injured on Kanis Road Dec. 1 has been ruled an accident, not a homicide. The release:


On 12/01/2015 Officer responded to being flagged down by a witness advising they saw a female thrown from a truck on Kanis Rd. Officer located a B/F (KORSHA ROGERS, B/F, 01/26/1981, of Little Rock) unresponsive in the road. Rogers was transported to the hospital where she died of her injuries.

Detectives were able to locate the vehicle and developed Donald Price as the driver. Price was interviewed and advised he was driving, but that Rogers climbed out of the passenger side window on her own. At the conclusion of the interview, Price facilitated the delivering of the truck he was driving the night of this incident. Price was then released without charges pending further investigation.

Nothing of evidentiary value was located in or underneath the vehicle. Photos were taken of the vehicle along with measurements, including the passenger window and distance from the frame of the vehicle to the ground. The vehicle was then released.

Detectives met with staff from the Medical Examiner’s Office and, based on the investigation, Dr. Erickson has ruled the victim’s death as an Accidental Death and not a Homicide. The investigative file will be for-warded to the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for any possible charges.
