LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KATV) — A semi-truck allegedly collided with a guard rail on a bridge over Interstate 440 in Little Rock.
According to the Little Rock Fire Captain Doug Coffman, the 18-wheeler collided with a guard rail causing the cab and the trailer to separate.
One of the fuel tanks fell onto Interstate 30 causing a fireball. Another tank proceeded to leak fuel onto the Interstate.
Slow-going at the South Terminal Interchange. This mail truck couldn’t decide which ramp to take and ran out of time before making a decision. #artraffic is moving but slowly. Expect delays on I-440 and I-30. #ARnews https://t.co/HW2KmKkWZq pic.twitter.com/c56zc1bTJ6
