All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.
Arkansas State Police Trooper Parker investigated a single vehicle rollover DWI crash March 3, 2021 around 11PM, on the big Highway 5 North curve at USA Storage.
Evidence at the scene showed that the Northbound vehicle crossed the center line in the curve, drove off the left side of the pavement, went down an embankment, collided with a ditch, overturned, mowed down a section of chain link fencing and came to final rest inside the USA Storage compound.
First responders could not easily access the crash from the highway. They all went into the storage compound.
Morning Star Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly. They assisted the driver and her dog with getting out of the vehicle and otherwise helped out as needed.
LifeNet dispatched their Hot Springs Village Ambulance Crew to the scene. They met with the driver, but did not transport her to the hospital.
The driver was arrested at the scene for suspicion of DWI. It’s unknown to me whether the driver was charged with anything.
Hot Springs Animal Control came out and took charge of the dog.
Traffic flow was not interrupted.
