Multiple-Truck Accident in Arkansas Leaves Driver in Serious Condition
Three semi-trucks were involved in an accident on the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 1, just outside Reyno in northeast Arkansas, according to KAIT.com. In a truck accident believed to be caused by heavy fog that blanketed the area, a grain truck was pulling onto Highway 328 from Highway 67 and was struck by a refrigerated truck driving south on 328. Seconds later, a third truck driving northbound collided with the overturned refrigerated truck. It took emergency crews almost two hours to get the driver of the refrigerated truck from the cab of her vehicle. She was transferred to a nearby medical facility and listed in serious condition. The drivers of the other two vehicles escaped with only minor injuries.
