NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Two lanes on Interstate 40 in central Arkansas have reopened after they were shut down for hours because of a major wreck.

Arkansas State Police say the wreck happened on I-40 at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the westbound lanes at the 145 mile marker, which is between the Interstate 430 and Morgan exits.

Two westbound lanes reopened at about 12:30 p.m.

Arkansas State Police Sgt. Bobby Brown says preliminary information indicates that two vehicles traveling east collided, causing one of the vehicles to cross the median and enter westbound traffic. Brown tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1RnKxGA ) that a tractor-trailer driving west then collided with the vehicle.
