UPDATE: Jack-knifed 18-wheeler cleared from FM 2661

UPDATE: FM 2661 is now open for motorists.


TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A jack-knifed 18-wheeler is blocking both lanes on FM 2661 just north of 31 Chandler Highway.


Around 10:50 am, the driver of a truck owned by Labatt Food Service based out of San Antonio was heading to his final delivery when he realized he was going to the wrong direction and attempted to do a U-turn and got stuck.

DPS and other emergency crews are working to remove the trailer from the main lanes of traffic.

The roadway remains blocked and for now motorists should use W. Loop 323 or Greenbriar Road as alternate routes between highway 64 W. and highway 31 W.
