LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - As more wintry precipitation comes into the natural state on top of what has already fallen, traffic conditions are getting treacherous in several areas of the state.
Along Chenal Parkway, many drivers have abandoned their cars in the road, according to the Little Rock Fire Department, which has been working continuous calls for the past two hours.
Though there have been no reports of serious injuries, Captain Randy Hickmon with LRFD said that pedestrians have been struck by oncoming traffic after getting out of their cars and away from the accident they were involved in.
According to THV11 producer Rowland Hoyt, US 270 is currently only a one-way across the bridge leading into Hot Springs. Traffic heading eastbound out of the city was stopped for two hours before reopening around 9:45 p.m. Westbound traffic is stopped from the city limits back five miles toward Malvern.
The roads are getting extremely slick with accidents happening in multiple parts of the state.
