State police ID victim in Interstate 40 chain-reaction crash

     (AP) – Authorities have identified the person killed in a

chain-reaction crash on Interstate 40 in eastern Arkansas that also left 10

people injured.

     Arkansas State Police said in a preliminary report released Monday that

68-year-old David White of Forrest City died in the crash Friday afternoon on

I-40 in St. Francis County. According to the report, the pileup happened when

six vehicles slowed on the interstate because of another accident. The report

says the seventh vehicle in line – a tractor-trailer – did not stop and crashed

into White’s vehicle, which created the massive pileup.

     The 10 injured included two children. State police say the injured passengers

were taken to hospitals in Forrest City and in Memphis, Tennessee.
