A male pedestrian was struck by a commercial carrier Thursday morning on eastbound Interstate 30 in Saline County, police said.

Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said Michael Patterson, 34, was struck shortly after 9:30 a.m. at exit 115 near Bryant. A preliminary investigation indicates Patterson was struck by the second trailer behind the truck as the driver swerved to avoid hitting Patterson.

Patterson was airlifted to a hospital after the accident, where he is being treated for the injuries he sustained from the crash.

The crash remains under investigation by the Arkansas State Police.

Exit 115 is in Benton not near Bryant.
First Bryant exit is 123.

There are SO many other ways to get to places! It appears Mr. Darwin might have been on to something. I, too, am amazed he is still breathing.
