Truckers stranded

Posted By on Thu, Dec 24, 2009 at 6:50 AM

Here's a sad Christmas story with at least some scattered Arkansas connections. Tulsa-based Arrow Trucking suspended operations suddenly, leaving truckers stranded all across the country.

[Driver Doug] Evans, whose load was bound for Houston, had run out of fuel. He was parked in a truck stop 60 miles east of Little Rock.

"I'm waiting for somebody to send me some money — Western Union so I can get enough fuel to get the truck to the Freightliner dealer in Little Rock," Evans said. "And then I'm going to have to walk home to Monroe, La. There are seven drivers I know about — from North Carolina to Arizona — who are walking home."
