Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy Wagner investigated a single vehicle injury crash around midnight last night on Westinghouse Drive at Ridgeway Boulevard.

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 vehicle traveled through the T-intersection at about the speed limit, slammed head-on into the tree line, came to final rest blocking a traffic lane and on fire. The fire caught the trees on fire in the immediate area which threatened structures on the property.  The occupants of the vehicle were located up the road several feet.

Arkansas State Police Troopers came to the scene and assisted as necessary.

Morning Star Fire & Rescue Troops arrived very quickly.  They blocked traffic, assisted with locating/treating the patients, put the fire out, assisted with cleanup and otherwise helped as needed.

LifeNet dispatched at least 1 Ambulance Crew to the scene.  At least 1 injured person was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 1 hour.
