Arkansas State Police Corporal Avant investigated a single vehicle rollover crash in the 8400 Block of Highway 298 last night.
Evidence at the scene suggested that the Ford Ranger truck exited the pavement, lost control, began sliding sideways on the grassy roadside, tripped, rolled over at least once and came to final rest on it’s roof in the highway with the injured driver trapped inside the wreckage. At least 1 vehicle had to take evasive action by swerving and skidding through the other grassy shoulder in order to avoid a collision with the wreckage.
Jessieville and Buckville Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly. The bulk of these 911’ers went to work stabilizing the wreckage, setting a fire watch, moving large debris (car parts, golf clubs, a tonneau cover, etc.), assisting the patient and cutting the car up in order to access the patient.
The other 911’ers ran a mile or so up the highway and set a landing zone for arrival of the LifeNet Air Crew. The helicopter arrived quickly, the landing zone Heroes shuttled the Air Medics back down to the scene. The patient was rescued and packaged for the flight. A LifeNet Ambulance Crew already at the scene took the patient and the Air Crew back to the landing zone and they departed for the flight to a higher level Little Rock trauma center.
The ranger was hand flipped back onto it’s feet by the Heroes and towed away.
Traffic flow was stopped for approximately an hour.
