18-Wheeler, Pickup Collide on Jonesboro Bypass

JONESBORO, AR - The driver of a small pick-up truck was injured this morning when his vehicle collided with an 18-wheeler on the U.S. 63 - Joe N. Martin Expressway in Jonesboro.  The accident occured at approximately 7:10 a.m. near the Caraway Road exit of the Expressway.

Witnesses told Region 8 News the accident occured as an east-bound Chevrolet S-10 pick-up slid out of control, across the median and into the west-bound lanes of traffic before it was broadsided by the tractor-trailer rig, ejecting the pick-up's driver, tentatively identified as Glen Tribble.  Witnesses say the man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
