CABOT -

An accident in Cabot Wednesday afternoon killed one person, and sent several children to the hospital.

The lead singer of the well-known Arkansas band, Riverbilly, was injured in the accident and is now hospitalized.

Authorities say the accident happened around 4:00 p.m. on Highway 5 at Memory Lane. According to Arkansas State Police, 35-year-old Valarie Payne of Cabot was driving a Dodge Durango northbound when she crossed the center-line and struck head-on a Nissan Titan driven by 36-year-old Travis Caudell.

Payne was pronounced dead at the scene. Her passengers--10-year-old Austin Payne and 4-year-old Braden Tillwy--were both injured. 

Four-year-old Ava Caudell was also injured in the accident.

Riverbilly's Facebook page says Travis Caudell is in critical but stable condition with several major injuries, but is expected to be okay.
