An accident involving several commercial trucks in Van Buren has claimed at least three lives, according to the office of the Crawford County Coroner. A news article on this emerging story is available here.

There have been three confirmed fatalities. The victims’ identities have not yet been released by the authorities. According to the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT), the collision has blocked the southbound lanes of I-540.

Witnesses to the fatal accident say a logging truck, a dump truck, and a flatbed semi hauling a bulldozer became involved in a collision with several passenger vehicles. The collision occurred near Exit 3 on I-540 in Van Buren just after the Arkansas River bridge. Early accounts suggest the logging truck was traveling northbound on I-540 when it crossed the median and collided with several vehicles.

I recently had to make to difficult choice to file Bankruptcy due to a life-changing heart condition at the peak of my career. It’s not an easy choice to make when you’ve managed a finance company for a living, and yet it became imperative for my survival and wellness. With horrible regret, I visited Caddell Reynolds for my first consultation. I think in a short while I knew I was on the right track. They say first impression is key, and I was placed at ease with the incredibly empathetic front desk coordinator, Yolanda. She knew I was nervous, and helped me feel welcome and informed.
