FAYETTEVILLE — State police are investigating after a body was found near an Interstate 540 overpass in Fayetteville.

Authorities say an Arkansas State Police trooper discovered the body Wednesday morning near the Wedington Drive overpass. State police say the person's cause of death hasn't been determined.

Investigators say the victim was struck by at least two vehicles traveling north on the interstate, but it wasn't clear if the person was walking across the roadway or jumped from the overpass.

Authorities say at least two people called 911 to report that they'd struck something or someone while driving on the interstate Wednesday morning.

The victim's name has not yet been released.
