Two people were killed and 19 others injured when the brakes on a logging truck failed, causing it to overturn and spill its cargo onto a crew of more than two dozen construction workers on a bridge in north Arkansas.

Van Buren County Sheriff Scott Bradley said the wreck occurred Monday afternoon on a U.S. 65 bridge in Clinton, about 70 miles north of Little Rock. Bradley said the logging truck's brakes apparently failed, causing the wreck.
