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.

  1. We came through there shortly after it happened. The car was crushed and both big rigs were damaged. There was debris all over the road. I hope those involved survived. It was an awful thing to see!

  2. We were almost hit by a big truck crossing the center line in a double no passing zone heading south this week in the same area. The no passing lanes don’t seem to mean much to folks in a hurry.
