Keeping safe in your car ahead of the snow

LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) - The projected snow on the way means dangerous driving on the way on area roads and highways.

The last place any of us want to be during a snow storm, and especially the week of Christmas, is stuck on the roads. THV 11 News caught up with a Little Rock mechanic to find out about some red flags to keep an eye on sooner than later.

It was the end of the day at the Goodyear Auto shop in West Little Rock, and as the last garage closed for the holiday, Owner Glen Keathley knew business could pick up after Christmas if Arkansas gets the projected snow storm.

"Very likely there could be some. That does happen," Keathley said.

To avoid a trip to the repair shop, Keathley offered a few things to look out for starting with the right design of your tires.

Victim: Weed shooting was result of mistaken identity

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A man told Little Rock police were mistakenly targeted by three men early Sunday morning while attempting to buy marijuana.

Tyler said the driver then sped off, at which point one of the shooters reportedly called the driver on his cell phone. The shooter told the driver that he and Tyler had been mistaken for someone else and were not the intended targets.
