The two people killed in an accident on Interstate 30 near Texarkana earlier this week have now been released.

The Arkansas State Police say 65 year old Allen Hans of Wisconsin, and  52 year old Telesforo Hernandez of Arizona were killed in the four vehicle crash that occurred near the 3 mile marker Eastbound I-30 Tuesday evening. The crash involved a van and three 18 wheelers.

Two other drivers were injured as well. Traffic was diverted off the interstate for hours following that accident and several other minor ones that occurred because of the initial crash.

That segment of interstate is part of an ongoing construction project that runs from Texarkana to east of the Red River bridge, that has seen numerous accidents and at least a handful of deadly accidents over the past year or so.

Authorities urge you to drive carefully and be especially alert in construction zones.
