Man hit by car in Brookland released from hospital, suspect arrested

BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) - A man hit by a car over the weekend in Brookland has been released from the hospital and a suspect is in jail.

The crash happened around 7 p.m.  Saturday near the Kum and Go on Highway 49B.

According to Brookland Police Officer Eric Stephens a man was stuck in a ditch on the highway when another man came to his aid. A third car then struck the vehicle helping the first driver. After the collision, the third car spun and hit the man stuck in the ditch.
