An asphalt tar truck overturned on U.S. Highway 67 / 167 on Tuesday morning during a three-vehicle accident just south of Beebe, resulting in 5,000 to 6,000 gallons of hot asphalt tar being spilled, according to officials. Both of the northbound lanes were closed for around seven hours before one lane reopened.
