Garland County Sheriff’s K-9 Patrol Deputy Strickland investigated a single vehicle injury crash on Amity Road last night near the South Moore Intersection.
I only had time to look at the driver’s side and rear of the crashed vehicle (before leaving to catch a shot of the helicopter) and was unable to determine what took place other than the vehicle may have collided head-on with a tree.
Lake Hamilton Fire & Rescue Troops responded to the scene quickly. Half of those that responded assisted with medical care and the other half responded to the intersection of South Moore Road and Rushfork Road to set up the landing zone for the LifeNet Air Crew.
LifeNet dispatched at least 2 Ambulance Crews, the EMS Supervisor and the Air Crew to work the crash. 2 occupants of the crashed car were taken to the hospital by ambulance. The 3rd occupant of the crashed car was taken by ambulance to the landing zone and ultimately flown to a hospital in Little Rock.
Holcomb’s Transport & Recovery took charge of the wreckage and removed it from the scene.
Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 30 minutes.
