Man charged in deadly collision | Crime
A man has been charged with manslaughter following a car crash that fatally injured a retired Sikeston school counselor.
On July 17, a pickup truck driven by Mark Lee Jobe, 47, struck a small passenger car driven by 53-year-old Kim Maclin of Sikeston as it crossed the intersection of Ingram Road and Malone, according to the Sikeston Department of Public Safety.
Lt. Jim McMillen says the impact caused the car to flip over. The pickup truck overturned several times and Jobe was thrown from the vehicle. Both he and Maclin were airlifted to a Cape Girardeau hospital in critical condition. Maclin later died of her injuries.
On Friday, Jobe was released from the hospital and charged with first degree assault-involuntary manslaughter and failure to obey a traffic device.
He is being held in the Scott County Jail in lieu of $75,000 cash-only bond.
Lt. McMillen says DPS is still investigating the crash and is asking for assistance from any witnesses. If you have any information that can help, call (573) 471-4711.
