One person died and at least two were injured in a three-vehicle crash on Interstate 430 between Cantrell and Rodney Parham Roads this morning. Police are searching for one driver who fled the scene.

Update: The driver who left the scene was found and interviewed. No charges have been filed and a complete report on the wreck won't be released until tomorrow.

STATE POLICE RELEASE

State Troopers assigned to Troop A of the Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate a highway crash along Interstate 430 in Little Rock this morning. The crash has claimed the life of one person and initial reports indicate at least two other persons were injured. None of injuries are believed to be life threatening.

Meanwhile a search is underway by State Police for the driver of a vehicle that reportedly fled the crash scene and may have been involved as part of the initial cause of the crash.

Arkansas State Police Troop A communication center received an initial call reporting the crash at approximately 7:22 AM.

A preliminary summary of the crash indicates a compact sedan and van were southbound on I-430, south of Cantrell Road (north of Rodney Parham) when the driver of the sedan may have either lost control of the car or been forced by the van from the roadway and crossed into the median, then into the northbound lanes of traffic colliding with a vehicle and exploding upon impact.

A third vehicle, a sedan, was involved in the northbound lane collision following the explosion.

Northbound traffic was stopped at the crash scene and the roadway was reopened about 9:20 this morning.

Please monitor the Arkansas State Police preliminary fatal summary page for further details once next of kin have been notified.
