Whoa! Several cars bust tires on big highway pothole

News

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. – When you say there’s a bump in the road, no one is expecting this.

“I almost swerved out of control and wrecked,” says Noah Eubanks.

Eubanks is a new Arkansan, and he’s getting adjusted with The Natural State.

“[It’s] dented in too far to even put a new tire on,” says Eubanks.

On Thursday, Eubanks spent his day putting a donut on his car so he can get to and from work.

The day before, while driving on Hwy. 67 near Jacksonville, Eubanks says he hit a huge pothole in the road and it busted out his tire.

“Five or six other people pulled over too that have popped their tires or messed up their wheels,” says Eubanks.

Arkansas DOT says the pothole has been patched, and there is a plan to make a permanent fix soon.

“Since it’s such an expensive wheel, I have to wait for my next paycheck to come,” says Eubanks.

ARDOT says this stretch of highway is the only part of the road that hasn’t been worked on yet, but don’t worry, that work is coming in the future.
