23-year-old killed in Sherwood car accident


SHERWOOD, Ark. (KTHV) – Family and friends held a candlelight vigil Wednesday night for a 23-year-old killed in a car accident while running from police.

The crash happened Tuesday night in Sherwood, when Cordero Hall tried to get away from officers after they attempted to stop him for reckless driving. Minutes later, police found Cordero's car wrapped around a tree on Country Club Road.

"I was on the couch watching TV, and I heard something that sounded like thunder. So, I sat there for a few minutes, and then I could see lights through my blinds," said neighbor Patti Lucarz, who was home at the time of the crash. "Kind of makes you think it could have been a house, he could have hit other cars. How many people could have died?"
