It was reported earlier that there were "injuries" in this crash and Jonesboro Police confirmed there were at least three explosions.

A driver has died following a crash and explosion at the Harrisburg Road overpass Tuesday, according to Jonesboro Police Department (JPD) Chief Rick Elliott.

The overpass has "serious damage" and state traffic officials are stopping any travelers from driving over it or under it, Chapman said. The massive fire occurred after impact, but there was no word by Jonesboro Police of whether or not hazardous materials were carried by the truck.

Jonesboro police are not allowing anyone to travel over or under the northbound lane side of the overpass.

Traffic on I-555 southbound is flowing smoothly at this time. The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department is inspecting the bridge and will develop a plan for repairs based on the findings.
