Hot Springs Police Sergeant Luzader supervised the initial investigation of a serious injury, off-set head-on crash that took place on Park Avenue just south of the Gorge Road Intersection yesterday. Due to the severity of injuries, Sgt. Luzader ordered out the HSPD Accident Reconstruction Investigators.
Evidence at the scene suggested that as the northbound car and southbound car reached each other at a point adjacent to the nursing home, at least 1 of the vehicles may have crossed the centerline.
National Park Rangers were very quick to respond and assist as necessary.
Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops were immediately tasked with extricating 1 of the occupants from the wreckage. Once all occupants were outside of the wreckage, they handled debris and automotive fluids clean up duties.
LifeNet Dispatched at least 2 Ambulance Crews, The EMS Supervisor and the LifeNet Air Crew. The landing zone was approximately 1/2 mile up the highway at Desoto Park. Children were injured in this crash.
Xtreme Towing & Recovery took charge and removed 1 of the vehicles from the scene.
This portion of Park Avenue was closed for approximately 2 hours.
