Trucker crashed because she ‘couldn’t decide which ramp to take and ran out of time,’ says DOT


The Arkansas Department of Transportation blamed a semi truck crash and a resulting fireball on the truck driver’s confusion about her route.

The crash happened on the afternoon of Sunday, June 23, in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Authorities say that a mail truck struck a guardrail on a bridge over I-440 because the driver “couldn’t decide which ramp to take and ran out of time before making a decision.”

The collision caused the cab of the truck to separate from the trailer.

Authorities also said that one of the fuel tanks fell off of the truck and dropped down onto I-30, causing a fireball. Another tank leaked fuel.

The truck driver was taken to the hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.

The incident resulted in heavy traffic delays on I-440 and I-30 yesterday.

The crash is still under investigation.
