Many ice prone areas in central Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Many of these slick prone locations have one of two factors; either they're more exposed to elements like a bridge or overpass or run over hilly terrain.

Benton Police say slick prone spots other than I-30 overpasses include Edison Avenue and Highway Five in the northeastern part of the city.

I-30 travelers hit a flood of wrecks Wednesday morning. Benton police and state troopers reported 19 wrecks within about two hours around 10 a.m.

"...Started getting bad really quick especially on bridges and overpasses," said Lt. Kevin Russell.

Russell says precipitation took the area off guard and that left the department scrambling for reinforcements to cover the crash volume.

"We had to have officers from our detective division, training and support services actually go out and assist with the call load," said Russell.
