Dump Truck Overturns, Causes Delays


By Tammy Moore Teague

We have learned more about a breaking news story that Resident Press correspondent, Chief Darrell Spells, reported on yesterday. Approximately 1 p.m. on Wednesday near the 1700 block of Arkansas 253, a dump truck overturned, spilling gravel onto the highway. The driver of that dump truck reported he had attempted to avoid hitting another vehicle and when he swerved,  overturned.

The Sebastian County Emergency Medical Services transported the driver to a local hospital. Multiple law enforcement officers, fire and EMS responded to the scene. That section of the road remained blocked off for a hour.
