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 that I had access to suggested that the vehicle may have been westbound when it crossed the street and struck a utility pole on the left side of the street.  The wooden pole was snapped in at least 2 pieces and at least pulled and stressed the associated electrical lines.

Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops assisted as necessary.

LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew to the scene.  It is unknown to me whether anyone was injured or not.

Entergy Troops were called to the scene.

Traffic flow was interrupted for at least 1 hour.
