A three-vehicle accident near Iron Mountain left one injured around 5 p.m. today [Wednesday, June 29, 2016] when a small car crossed the centerline on Highway 71. Two semis were also involved in the crash, with one leaving the roadway and striking a tree. Highway 71 was shut down temporarily as both lanes were blocked due to the accident. The drivers of the trucks were uninjured and the passenger of the car was taken to Mena Regional Health System where they were airlifted to an unknown hospital. This is a developing story that will be updated as more information becomes available.
