A Northwest Arkansas family is left homeless after crashing their mobile home.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office notified road crews around 7 p.m. Sunday evening that a mobile home had turned over on its side on Minch Springs Road, near Sugar Creek Rd. in Benton County.

Benton County Road Dept. Superintendent Jack Brown says the mobile home fell over on its side as they attempted to navigate it down a narrow road.

Brown says the owners of the mobile home attempted to move the 14x70 ft. mobile home trailer down a road only 12 feet wide, causing the accident.

The accident shutdown travel on Minch Springs Road for hours Sunday night and into Monday morning.

Brown says crews called in a wrecker from Rogers to attempt to move the trailer.  He says the trailer fell apart as the wrecker moved it.

The owner of the trailer plans to come out Monday morning disassemble the mobile home and tear it down to scrap.

Authorities have not said whether or not the driver was cited for the accident.
