Local News

FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. – Officials may have been wondering if a driver was using her noodle after pulling a tractor-trailer hauling ramen out of Lake Conway Tuesday afternoon.

According to a report from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the semi, which was hauling 20,000 pounds of ramen noodles, ended lying on its side in the edge of the lake near the intersection of State Highway 89 and Interstate 40 around 3 p.m.

Staff with the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality and a hazardous material crew also responded to the crash. The Mayflower Police Department led the response to the crash.

A wrecker was called to pull the truck out of the lake, and the AGFC reported that there did not appear to be any contamination in the lake.

Officials said the driver of the truck was uninjured.
