DODDRIDGE, Ark. (AP) — Two stars of the reality TV show “Swamp People” are unhurt after being involved in a five-car pileup near the Arkansas-Louisiana state line
Arkansas State Police say three people suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries in Monday’s crash on U.S. 71.
The Texarkana Gazette reports that alligator hunters Joe LaFont and Tommy Chauvin, known as Trapper Joe and Trigger Tommy, were not injured. “Swamp People” T-shirts and other merchandise from the show spilled from their truck onto the highway.
Police say four cars had stopped for a flagman directing traffic around highway maintenance work but that a fifth driver failed to halt and smashed into a tractor-trailer, causing the pileup.
The History Channel’s “Swamp People” follows a group of Louisiana alligator hunters in the Atchafalaya Swamp.
