I came upon a terrible wreck last night at the corner of Highway 141 and CR780. Does anyone know who was involved, how it happened and is everyone going to be ok. Prayers to these people.

The vehicles I saw were a white Ford Pickup 4 X 4 and a small SUV type vehicle, there was an older lady there who said they were her Grandchildren and she was driving a white Ford SUV I think it had Progressive Insurance in blue on the side. She said her Grandson was in the ambulance that had just left and that he wasn't breathing. I have not seen anything on the news or KAIT online regarding this accident. I think there was one more vehicle that could have been involved. It looked like one of the vehicles was pulling onto or off of 780 and got hit. It took over an hour for them to get it cleared so you could pass. Sure hope this was not one of your family members. Prayers to all of those involved.

Wondering if anyone has information about a wreck that happened Saturday night on Hwy 141 Jonesboro. We attended a wedding at house on 141. My son is in USCG and is EMT. He plus a nurse responded to an accident involving two vehicles. One grey Santa Fe had 3 boys (ages approx. 5, 12, 14 -one was autistic) and 2 adults (mother & father) & other vehicle white Ford PU with one man. He was wondering about the boys. Prayers for all involved.

Still wondering about this myself, I came up not long after it happened, I know a lady who said she was a Grandmother to the children said one of the boys was sent to the hospital and was not breathing. I hope they all came out ok, I thought there was one more truck involved but maybe not. The white pickup was functional enough to be moved but the Sante Fe looked horrible. Still nothing on the news about it. :(

We are not from the Jonesboro area but my son was very concerned for the family especially the children. I have checked news sites and State police webpage and I found nothing either. My son said the mother and one of the boys went to hospital in one ambulance and one child went in separate ambulance. Being in the USCG, he has to report anything like this that he responds to. I hope I can find something to set his mind at ease. He was very upset because they had nothing to work with but thankfully only took ambulances with paramedics about 15 minutes to arrive.

That is WONDERFUL news!!! My son will be so glad to hear this. Is it the middle child that is still in the hospital? If you know this family please send them our best wishes and let them know lots of prayers said last night.

It happened when they were leaving our homeschool fall festival out by Lake Frierson. It was not their grandmother but their mother. One child has a broken hip. One is just bruised, scrapes and banged up and one is in medically induced coma for brain swelling. This was provided second hand. The mom has broken bones in hand. Nothing said about the dad yet. The family hosting the Fall Festival is close to the injured family and will update us more tomorrow.

I guess the other vehicle could have been their grandmother. Just re-read that first post. Sorry.

Thank you for the information. I will be sure to pass it on to my son. He was afraid one of the boys had a hip injury and the little guy that is in medical induced coma is the middle child that he was very worried about. He said the youngest and dad appeared okay. He said the mom was very strong and held it together. Please keep us posted and let the family know that prayers are being said.

I came up on this wreck soon after it happend. Haven't heard anything about it since then so i checked Arkansas state police website and learned there was a fatality in the wreck. I have came up on 5 wrecks on 141 in the last 2-3 months. This highway is dangerous, especially when most people dont go the speed limit (50) . Praying for those involved

Thank you for the update. I emailed my son and he just called. He said He was afraid the little guy wasn't going to make it. He said no parent should have to bury a child. He was very impressed with how strong the mom was at the wreck site. My son shared the incident with his CO and he asked my son one day last week if there had been an update. If you know this family please extend our condolences and know that we are praying.

This was the wreck that our family was involved in. I want to thank all of those who helped our family on the scene. We were lucky to have so many caring people there...I am not sure but I think we ended up having 2 nurses & an EMT there within a few short minutes. Unfortunately our middle son didn't survive this accident. Our oldest son was able to come home Halloween. We had a long stay at LeBonheur's hospital & had the best care for our sons. I want to give a huge THANK YOU to those special people who helped us & also for all the prayers! Our son is a hero...he continues to give to others & lives on through organ donation...this is the hardest thing our family has ever had to endure...but we had to make something good come from this tragedy. Thank you again for the continued thoughts & prayers...
