SPRINGHILL — One man was injured and taken to a nearby hospital following a three-vehicle crash along Highway 65 on Friday.
According to radio traffic, a man was underneath his truck in the right, northbound lane when another vehicle rear-ended his vehicle. The man's truck had broken down on the highway when he got underneath it to begin working on it, according to radio traffic.
A portion of Highway 65 near Greenbrier at the intersection of Ball Hill Road and Highway 65 was shut down Friday afternoon as authorities worked to clear the scene of debris following the crash involving a silver Chevrolet Silverado, a grey Dodge Ram and a silver Sebring.
The Greenbrier Police Department, with aid from the Guy Police Department, redirected traffic headed into Greenbrier to the turning lane as the northbound lanes were closed. The highway was closed for about 20 minutes, reopening around 1 p.m.
A state trooper on scene confirmed one man was taken from the crash scene by ambulance but was unclear of the extent of his conditions. Road conditions were wet as rain drizzled onto the highway at the time of crash.
Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler was unable to provide additional crash details by press time Friday, noting the crash was still under investigation.
"No investigative report has yet been filed at this time," Sadler said Friday evening. "No other information is available."
