One dies in fiery crash
The wreck happened in Ruston city limits near Rabb’s Steakhouse when the FedEx truck out of North Carolina struck a Tara Trucking 18-wheeler out of Jonesboro in the right-hand eastbound lane.
“The Tara Trucking truck was moving very slowly, and the FedEx truck struck the rear of the Tara Trucking truck,” Hawkins said.
The reason the Tara Trucking 18-wheeler was moving so slowly was unclear at press time.
When the FedEx truck hit the other 18-wheeler, it burst into flames, Hawkins said.
“It looked like a bomb went off,” he said.
