ORIGINAL STORY: MedFlight was called to Bryant for the second time this week on Wednesday. Sgt. Todd Crowson with the Bryant Police Department said that a male driver crashed into a tree on Boswell Road in Bryant around 11 a.m. The driver was transported by MedFlight to Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock. The name and age of the victim have not yet been released and a condition report has not been made available. More information will be reported as it becomes available.
Moments after CNN broke the story that a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing was in custody, various news outlets, including the Associated Press, picked up the story.
The reporting was based on information from an investigative official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Now, federal officials deny that a suspect is in custody, according to the Associated Press.
Here is CNN's coverage of the controversy:
A suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken into custody Wednesday in a breakthrough that came less than 48 hours after the deadly attack, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation said Wednesday.
The official spoke shortly after several media outlets reported that a suspect had been identified from surveillance video taken at a Lord & Taylor store between the sites of the two bomb blasts, which killed three people and wounded more than 170.
