The Page County Sheriff’s Office reports a Shenandoah man was arrested Friday evening on Mills County warrants for OWI/2nd Offense, Vehicular Homicide/OWI, and Homicide by Vehicle/reckless driving. An investigation determined 29-year old Lyle Francis Stogdill was the driver of a vehicle that crashed August 20th, northwest of Malvern. The accident claimed the life of 46-year old Robert Gene Ryan, of Shenandoah.

Ryan was ejected from a 1994 Mazda pickup truck that had been traveling west on Highway 34, when it entered the south ditch and crossed 288th Street, before rolling over.  Stogdill was injured in the crash. Neither man was wearing a seat belt. Authorities weren’t sure at the time, which man was driving the pickup.

Sheriff Lyle Palmer says Stogdill was unable to post $37,000 bond, and was being held in the Page County Jail until he could be transported to Mills County.
