UPDATE: Overturned big rig cleared, all lanes open on I-20

UPDATE 11:40: Harrison County Sheriff's Department has confirmed that the overturned 18-wheeler has cleared and all lanes on I-20 eastbound have been re-opened.

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - I-20 is now partially reopened, hours after an 18-wheeler accident shut down both the eastbound lanes.  

A little after midnight, an 18-wheeler was heading down I-20 carrying some metal racks when it tipped over east of Loop 281 near Mile Marker 600 just over the Harrison county line.

At this time crews have the right lane closed while they offload the metal racks onto another 18-wheeler that has just arrived on the scene.

There are numerous emergency vehicles and equipment in the area. Motorists heading to Shreveport should use Hwy 80 to avoid delays.

No injuries have been reported at this time.
