A LifeNet Ambulance on a mission found and reported a car crash on Malvern Avenue near Lakeside Road (W) yesterday afternoon.
Hot Springs Police and another LifeNet Ambulance Crew responded to the area and located a car vs. tree crash in a yard near that location. Evidence at the scene showed that the car was westbound when it hopped the right hand curb, plowed over a very short rock wall and slammed into the large tree in a head-on fashion. Upon impact the vehicle spun approximately 90° and came to final rest in the yard very close to the tree.
The officer was looking into the possibility of a blowout prior to the driver losing control of the vehicle. One of the vehicles tires was flat and damaged.
The LifeNet Crew that responded to the scene met with the driver, but did not take him as a patient.
Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 40 minutes.
