Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials say the Young Road overpass is closed and its crews will be inspecting the scene after the truck wreckage is removed.
The accident occurred in the westbound lane of Interstate 40 at the Young Road Overpass, which is east of the Crystal Hill overpass.
AHTD officials say if any damage is found, crews will make the necessary repairs. AHTD hopes to get traffic flowing along Interstate 40 beneath the overpass sometime overnight.
As of late Thursday afternoon Interstate 40 westbound traffic was being detoured at Exit 150 (burns Park) to Highway 365.
The Young Road overpass was built in 1963. It is 220 feet long and carries about 750 vehicles each day.
Drivers traveling through the area are urged to be extra careful when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones.
