Logging accident

Bill Sadler, spokesman for the Arkansas State Police, confirmed to The Saline Courier today that a two-vehicle accident involving a logging truck Wednesday in Saline County killed one person.

The accident occurred on Highway 5 South toward Hot Springs Village and caused major delays in traffic for hours as crews worked to clear the area.
