MAUMELLE, Ark. — Arkansas State Police say two people were killed after a crash on Interstate 40 in central Arkansas on Sunday.
State police say the wreck happened at about 5 a.m. Sunday near the Morgan/Maumelle exit on the interstate in Pulaski County. According to a preliminary report, a car driven by 27-year-old Lucy Enloe of North Little Rock was disabled in the right lane because of an earlier, unrelated wreck.
An oncoming pickup truck crashed into Enloe’s car and into a tractor-trailer whose driver had pulled over onto the shoulder to help with the earlier car wreck.
The pickup truck’s driver, 70-year-old Donald Hutchcroft of Conway, was pronounced dead at the scene. State police say Enloe died later Sunday at a hospital.
