A Toyota minivan and a tractor trailer were involved, according to Terry Whiteside, the battalion chief of the Bella Vista Fire Department. Both drivers were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
“Cars these days are built to take an impact better than they used to be,” he said. z’If it had been ten years ago, chances are we might have had a fatality in the passenger vehicle.”
Traffic in the southbound lane was reduced to one lane and was at a standstill for nearly 30 minutes.
