Howard County police want to talk with anyone who might have witnessed an accident on Route 108 that killed two Clarksville women Tuesday.

Just before 5 p.m., a truck eastbound on Route 108, also known as Clarksville Pike, was towing a flatbed trailer that carried two large pieces of trenching equipment. The trailer slid into the westbound lanes.

One piece of equipment came loose and hit a white Toyota Corolla driven by Sue Marie Miller, 67. The trailer then hit a blue Dodge Grand Caravan driven by Jacqueline Cormier Jenkins, 49.

Miller and Jenkins died of their injuries.

The truck driver, Harold Dewayne Kitchens, 27, of Hot Springs, Ark., has been charged with negligent manslaughter by auto. The accident occurred west of Manorstone Lane, police said.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the accident to call 410-313-3700.
