Second Arrest Made In Hampton Crash

Emily Corwin for NHPR

A New Hampshire woman is scheduled to be arraigned on charges of selling drugs to a 19-year-old woman accused of plowing into a group of cyclists over the weekend, killing two from Massachusetts.

Hampton police arrested 48-year-old Cindy Sheppard of Hampton Wednesday night. She's charged with supplying drugs to Darriean Hess of Seabrook and allowing Hess to drive without a license.

Sheppard is being held on $10,000 cash bail. She is to be arraigned Thursday in Seabrook.

Hess, ordered held on $50,000 bail, was arraigned Wednesday via video from jail. She's charged with negligent homicide.

Police say Hess was driving too fast and without a license when she ran into the cyclists on an annual ride in Hampton on Saturday. Two riders died and two were injured.
