Hot Springs Police investigated a traffic crash yesterday afternoon that closed down Albert Pike Road for hours.
Evidence at the scene suggested that a blue car lost control and struck a utility pole, splitting the pole in two pieces. The top of the pole remained in the air, suspended by utility lines that were attached to it. Some lines fell and landed in the highway prompting Hot Springs Police to close the highway to traffic.
Any possible injury information is unknown to me.
This part of the highway was closed for at least 3 hours.
