Authorities have identified the truck driver killed in a fiery wreck on Interstate 440 Thursday as a Jacksonville man.
Arkansas State Police say Terry Harrell, 60, died in the accident Wednesday afternoon near the Fourche Dam Pike exit.
Harrell was driving 2009 Freightliner east on the highway when it burst into flames after colliding with a Chevrolet Impala, police said at the scene. The truck then hit a second eastbound semi truck, which also caught fire.
A preliminary accident report released Thursday indicated only that the wreck was still under investigation. Police at the scene said it appeared the Impala may have been going in reverse when the first collision happened.
The Impala driver, who suffered unspecified injuries and was taken to UAMS Medical Center for treatment, was identified in the report as Leigh Miller, 23, of Little Rock.
A passenger in the car, 21-year-old Devontae Akins of Little Rock, was also injured as was the driver of the other semi, 38-year-old Jose Arellano of Mexico, the report said.
The wreck closed eastbound I-440 and brought westbound traffic to a crawl for hours, snarling traffic in the area.
