Arkansas State Police Sergeant Steed investigated a single vehicle injury crash on Highway 270 East at Tanenbaum’s Thanksgiving Day after dark.
Evidence at the scene showed that the eastbound SUV lost control on wet pavement, crossed the entire highway in a curve, exited the left side of the pavement, struck a dirt embankment head-on and came to final rest on the grassy shoulder of the highway.
Morning Star Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly. They assisted with patient care and handled other duties as needed.
LifeNet dispatched 2 Ambulance Crews and the EMS Supervisor to the scene. At least 1 injured person was transported by ambulance to the hospital.
Traffic flow was interrupted for at least 40 minutes.
