Accident on Arkansas 12

Thursday NWA Media photographer and Outdoors writer Flip Putthoff  went to an accident where an Anderson diesel fuel tanker rolled one and one-half to two times before coming to rest on a pickup truck, an eyewitness said.

The accident on Arkansas 12 east of Rogers halted traffic as authorities work to extricate the driver of the pickup.

At the time this is being posted on the blog Arkansas State Police Cpl. Mike Morgan said the driver has not been declared dead, but is believed to be.

Morgan said the tanker driver, who was not injured, said he could not stop, and swerved to avoid hitting a vehicle that was stopped.
