— Police in Rogers say a woman has been ticketed after crashing her car into a fire truck that was responding to a medical call.

No serious injuries are reported from the Friday crash.

Police say 36-year-old Samantha Tygart of Rogers was ticketed for careless driving after she skidded across a wet roadway while trying to stop for the fire truck that had its lights and sirens engaged about 7:30 a.m.

Police spokesman Keith Foster says Tygart sideswiped the fire truck then crashed into a guardrail. Foster says Tygart was treated for minor injuries while there were no injuries to the three firefighters on the truck.

I've lived in a few states in my time, some of which get snow measured in feet. By FAR, AR has the slickest roads in rain. I mean, really. It's ridiculous how slick they are. Parking lots too, for that matter. And I've yet to hear a good reason for it (no, it's not my tires).

In Ar the roads are grooved the wrong direction. Between here and Seattle, the roads are grooved perpendicular to the center line. It works! The water can drain OFF.
