FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say a 23-year-old Fort Smith man is dead after he was struck by two vehicles while walking across Interstate 540.
Arkansas State Police say the deadly collision happened early Saturday on I-540 in Fort Smith. A preliminary report says Joshua Winkler walked across the northbound lane and around a temporary concrete barrier dividing the north and south lanes.
He was struck by two vehicles while trying to cross the southbound lane of traffic.
State police tell Fort Smith television KHBS that Winkler's SUV had broken down on the interstate and Winkler was walking across the interstate to get help.
