ROGERS, AR : One person injured in semi-truck rollover crash on Wednesday, 5th January 2022
An 18-wheeler carrying sawdust overturned in Rogers early Wednesday morning, downing a traffic light and hitting another vehicle before bursting into flames.
The accident happened around 6 a.m. at the intersection of N Second St. and NE Hudson Rd. After the westbound semi-truck overturned, the sawdust inside the trailer caught fire and caused an explosion, shown in nearby surveillance video.
It took crews hours to clean the sawdust from the roadway.
Rogers police said amazingly, only the truck driver -- a 33-year old man -- was transported to Northwest Medical Center with minor injuries. The semi slid and struck a car waiting to turn at the inters
ection. The 59-year-old woman driving the car was uninjured.
