UPDATE:

U.S. 65 has reopened after it was shut because of a wreck.

EARLIER:

U.S. 65 is closed in both directions because of a wreck in the Pickles Gap area north of Conway, officials said.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation said shortly after 2:45 p.m. that the crash had caused power lines to fall across the highway. Traffic was shut in both directions, and there was no immediate word on when it might reopen.

An Arkansas State Police spokesman said preliminary reports indicated the crash involved a commercial truck, though that hadn't been confirmed.

It wasn't clear if anyone was injured in the wreck.

The Arkansas Online live traffic map showed stalled conditions in the area before 3 p.m.

That stretch of highway from there to Springhill is called the "kill zone." I went to high school with a woman whose two teen age daughters were killed in an area of that stretch called the flats.
