The woo pig open line

Posted By on Sat, Sep 3, 2016 at 4:27 PM

Here is the football Saturday open line, including this State Police report on the northbound chain-reaction at the Bobby Hopper Tunnel with heavy traffic heading to the game in Fayetteville on I -49:

PRELIMINARY INFORMATION FROM HOPPER TUNNEL CRASH SCENE . . .

2 PM, Saturday, September 3, 2016

Arkansas State Troopers remain at the scene of a multiple vehicle crash inside the Hopper Tunnel along Interstate 49 (northbound).

Initial reports from the crash scene were received by the Arkansas State Police at 11:40 AM today.

Although no official reports have been submitted by the troopers at the scene, possibly as many as ten vehicles were initially reported to be involved in what may prove to be several chain reaction rear-end collisions.

Injuries were reported to the responding troopers, however none have been confirmed to be serious.

For a short-time all traffic was stopped until 12:33 PM when one lane was cleared.

At 1:33 PM all lanes were open and traffic was moving.

No further advisories are expected until final reports are submitted by the investigating troopers.
