There is construction on the I 440 Arkansas River bridge & lanes west of the bridge go from three to two lanes. This is the route that by passes downtown Little Rock for I 30 & I 530. I don't know what caused the roll over but traffic was stopped for a long time.
Sleeper Team. New Pup on rear, Totaled Freightliner. At least they're both okay.
If you're tired, just wake your Co-driver up or pull off and get a coffee and walk around.
I won't speculate who was at fault. The construction starts at the river bridge & goes past the airport exit. This is a very congested area & requires defensive driving even without the construction & narrowing of the road from 3 lanes down to 2 narrow lanes. An overturned truck attracts a lot of attention & makes headlines on the news. People assume the driver of the overturned rig is at fault.
By the picture I see posted here, In that construction area, I would say, slow the hell down!!
