Arkansas State Police Trooper Wingo investigated a rear-end crash involving a motorcycle over the holiday weekend on Highway 270 West at the Lodge Road Intersection.

Evidence at the scene suggested that the van was traveling west when it slowed/stopped and was waiting on Eastbound traffic to clear before turning left.  The Westbound motorcycle struck the rear of the van and came to final rest near the area of impact.  The van made the turn and stopped on the side of the road.

The Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol assisted as needed.

Piney Fire & Rescue Troops assisted with patient care and otherwise assisted as needed.

LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew to the scene.  The injured motorcycle rider was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 45 minutes.
