Hot Springs Police Officer Plyler was investigating a crash when a second crash occurred right in front of them.
The first crash took place at the top of the Bypass McLeod Eastbound On-Ramp. A vehicle (possibly a white truck), violently struck the right side guard rail, ripping it’s posts out of the ground.
Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and assisted as needed. Any possible injury associated with this first crash is unknown to me.
The ramp was closed during this operation.
Eastbound traffic passing by the scene crashed where this McLeod Ramp merges with Bypass traffic. A witness at the scene told me that 2 passenger vehicles and an 18-wheeler all crashed directly adjacent to the crash scene.
The actions of these 3 vehicles are unknown to me. All 3 vehicles came to final rest in the eastbound traffic lanes.
I was told that there was an injury, but it is unknown to me whether anyone was transported to the hospital by ambulance.
LifeNet dispatched at least one Ambulance Crew and the EMS Supervisor to the scene to assist.
