A Little Rock woman and her young son escaped serious injury Sunday evening when she lost control of her SUV, resulting in it running off of the interstate, crashing into the treeline and overturning.
Savannah Mack, of Little Rock, was traveling east in the inside lane of I-30 near the 25 mile marker just after 6 p.m. Sunday when she said she attempted to give a cracker to her son who was riding in his car seat and realized she had drifted off the onto the median shoulder. Mack reported that she attempted to steer her Chevrolet Trailblazer back onto the road when she lost control and went into a spin. Mack’s Trailblazer crossed the interstate as it spun around and went into the ditch where its driver side struck some small trees, spinning the SUV around and overturning it on the driver side.
Arkansas DOT Highway Police, Arkansas State Police, Hempstead County Sheriff’s Office, Guernsey Fire Department and Pafford EMS responded to the crash. No information on the condition of Mack and her son was initially available as they responded. A helicopter was requested to go on standby until they were able to get on scene where they found Mack and her son came out of the crash with only minor injuries.
Trooper May investigated the crash with the assistance of Hempstead County Deputies.
