(AP) - State police have released the names of two men who died when a logging truck crashed and spilled its cargo in a construction zone on an Arkansas bridge, injuring 19 others.
    
Officials on Tuesday said 40-year-old Ricardo Trochez of Atkins and 51-year-old Robert Keith Moore of Chester died in the accident at Clinton.
    
A preliminary report says a rear tire on the trailer blew out and caused the load to shift, scattering the logs across the construction area and killing and injuring workers.
    
The report says Moore was pronounced dead at the scene and that Trochez died at a Clinton hospital.
    
The dead and injured worked for a firm contracted by the state for the widening project.
    
State police spokesman Bill Sadler said Tuesday that the investigation was continuing.
