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.

“It looked like a bomb went off,” he said.
