Multiple vehicle crash inside Hopper Tunnel on I-49 delays traffic

WINSLOW, Ark. (KTHV) - People making their way up north to Fayetteville for the Razorbacks game were met with traffic delays along Interstate 49 after a multiple vehicle accident inside the Bobby Hopper Tunnel.

Arkansas State Police arrived on the scene after calls started coming in around 11:40 a.m. Saturday morning. Police have not filed any reports but say there were as many as ten vehicles involved in the accident.

They suspect the reason so many cars were involved in the accident was due to a chain reaction of rear-end collisions.

Injuries were reported to the troopers but at this time they don't believe any of them to be serious.

Around 1:33 p.m. all lanes were open on I-49 and traffic is once again moving.

A final report will be released by the Arkansas State Police in the coming days.
