FULTON, Ark. (AP) - Authorities will resume their search Monday for a person who jumped from an icy interstate bridge into a river to avoid a skidding tractor-trailer in southwestern Arkansas.

Arkansas Game and Fish Commission spokesman Keith Stephens says teams in boats with sonar were unsuccessful Sunday as they searched the Little Red River near Fulton.

State Police say three people were outside their vehicles after an accident early Saturday on the Interstate 30 bridge when a commercial truck jackknifed and started sliding toward them.

Two people leapt over the guardrail and into the river. One person was quickly rescued, but the other person wasn’t found. The missing person’s name hasn’t been released.

The temperature at the time was 29 degrees.
