Two people were killed in a wrong-way accident on the north end of the Main Street bridge this afternoon, forcing closure of the bridge to traffic for investigation of the accident.

Our news partner KARK has this account:

A pickup truck driver and a bicyclist are both dead after colliding in an accident on the Main St. Bridge Wednesday afternoon, the North Little Rock Police Department (NLRPD) says.

The NLRPD says the driver of the pickup truck was driving the wrong way, going southbound in the northbound lanes of the bridge, when he hit a bicyclist.

The NLRPD says the driver caused a hit and run accident at 5th and Main St. just before this accident. Police say he drove off after that accident, and that's when he hit the bicyclist.

Police say the Main St. Bridge will be closed for at least a few hours.
