I have been in touch with the prosecutor's office regularly.
Woodruff County is part of the Arkansas 1st Judicial District
The chief state's attorney in this issue is:
P.O. Box 599
McCrory, AR 72101-0599
Here is the text of an email I received from his office:
August 2, 2013
Today marks the one month anniversary of the incident north of McCrory which injured several visiting bicyclists and resulted in the tragic death of 18 year old Merritt Levitan of Milton, Massachusetts.
The Arkansas State Police, Woodruff County Sheriff's Department and the 1st Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney's Office continue to investigate the circumstances of the incident and will proceed accordingly upon conclusion of the investigation.
Our sympathies are again extended to the Levitan Family as well as the families of all the young people affected.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Woodruff County, Arkansas
I have also been in touch with Danny Shameer, the state editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Danny Shameer - State Editor
He is looking into a follow-up story on this case -
especially if no action is taken in a reasonable amount of time.
Too many cyclists are killed when there is no witness other than the driver.
Because there are numerous witnesses and road/weather conditions were good,
it is essential that this case not be ignored.
This case has the potential to exacerbate a number of issues - -
The backgrounds of Ms. Levitan and the young driver could not be more dissimilar.
The cultures of suburban New England and rural Arkansas clash.
It is a tragic story, indeed.
