DODDRIDGE, ARK. (AP) - Two stars of the reality TV show “Swamp People” are unhurt after being involved in a five-car pileup near the Arkansas-Louisiana state line

Arkansas State Police say three people suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries in Monday’s crash on U.S. 71.

The Texarkana Gazette reports ( https://is.gd/i7AGTL) that alligator hunters Joe LaFont and Tommy Chauvin, known as Trapper Joe and Trigger Tommy, were not injured. “Swamp People” T-shirts and other merchandise from the show spilled from their truck onto the highway.

Police say four cars had stopped for a flagman directing traffic around highway maintenance work but that a fifth driver failed to halt and smashed into a tractor-trailer, causing the pileup.

The History Channel’s “Swamp People” follows a group of Louisiana alligator hunters in the Atchafalaya Swamp.
