At least one person has been killed in a fiery accident involving eight semi-automotives and three passenger cars on Interstate-30 in Arkansas.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation says multiple drivers were injured, but did not specify how many or how serious their injuries are.

The eastbound lanes of I-30 remain closed for miles and are sustained by the approach of the carnage. Traffic is moving slowly in the westbound lanes and traffic is being diverted.

Arkansas DOT is handing out food and water to drivers stranded on the highway, and authorities are reversing traffic to clear the accident site.

The accident happened Wednesday afternoon on a stretch of highway in Hot Springs County, near Malvern.

It is still unclear what caused the accident.

An Arkansas DOT representative said it would take a long time for traffic to clear on the highway.

Photos of the scene show shredded semis piled on top of each other and scattered across the highway as a fireball consumes them and spreads across the median.

A column of smoke could be seen from the pyre. It was visible for miles, towering over the traffic backing onto the highway.

This is a story in development, check back for updates.
