Hot Springs Police Officers investigated a head-on injury DWI crash on Section Line Road in front of the U.S. Post Office last night.
Evidence at the scene suggested that at least 1 vehicle may have crossed the center line and struck the other vehicle. Both vehicles came to final rest in the middle of the road very close to the point of impact.
One of the driver’s allegedly involved, Jack Meadows, 50, of Hot Springs, participated in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing at the scene. He was arrested at the conclusion of the test and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. He is charged with DWI with a $1,000 bond.
Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and assisted as required.
LifeNet dispatched at least 1 Ambulace Crew to the scene. They met with at least 1 of the drivers involved. She seemed injured, but they did not transport that driver to the hospital by ambulance.
Holcomb’s Transport & Recovery took charge of and removed 1 of the vehicles from the scene.
Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 45 minutes.
