Arkansas State Police Trooper Robbins investigated a 3 vehicle injury crash last night on Highway 270 East in front of Mr. Whiskers.
Evidence at the scene suggested that the silver vehicle attempted to turn left out of the Mr. Whiskers Parking Lot directly into the path of oncoming traffic. A 3rd vehicle was struck during the collision. The silver vehicle was knocked back into the Mr. Whisker’s roadside ditch. The red car lost a wheel in the collision and became immobilized in the turn lane. The third vehicle became disabled and was parked on the side of the highway in front of the Dollar General Store.
Morning Star Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly. They took charge of traffic control, assisted with patient care and otherwise assisted as needed.
LifeNet dispatched at least 1 Ambulance Crew to the scene. A witness at the scene told me that two injured people were transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Ernie’s Wrecker Service took charge of at least one of the vehicles and removed it from the scene.
Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 45 minutes.
