I was late to this crash.  I am under the impression that Arkansas State Troopers may have investigated this 2 vehicle, rollover crash yesterday in the 800 Block of Amity Road.  The Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol also responded to this crash and may have investigated it.

Lloyd’s Auto Sales wants to help you rebuild your credit. Let us get you financed right here in Hot Springs, where we serve all of Arkansas.

Evidence at the scene showed that the eastbound septic tank truck exited the right side of the road, overcorrected steering, crossed the entire road, exited the left side of the road, overcorrected steering, crossed the entire road again, exited the right side of the pavement again, overcorrected again, crossed the center line, struck a Toyota Prius, rolled over and came to final rest on it’s roof in a ditch with the driver trapped inside.

Lake Hamilton Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and worked to free the driver of the truck, blocked traffic and otherwise assisted as needed.

I do not know whether anyone was injured.  The only thing I know about the Prius is that it was towed from the scene by Ernie’s Wrecker Service.

Garland County Environmental Services Troops were dispatched to the scene to investigate any leakage situation.  To my knowledge, there was no leak that would rise to a level that would concern them.

A second tank truck was ordered to the scene to offload the cargo in the wrecked tank truck.

Holcomb’s Transport & Recovery brought out their heavy duty wrecker and was able to recover the tank truck quickly with no problems at all.

Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 2.5 hours.
