Fog adds to delays after 18-wheeler wreck on ETX highway

UPDATE 9:58 AM: At this time all the fog has lifted near the Titus/Morris County Line.

UPDATE: An early morning accident involving an 18-wheeler has cleared, but fog is still extremely dense in the area. Motorists should drive very slowly and use the low beam headlights.

UPDATE: Titus County officials have confirmed that one lane has been re-opened on Highway 49 after dense fog and a major 18-wheeler wreck had it closed earlier this morning.

TITUS/MORRIS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A major East Texas highway is shut down this morning.

Emergency crews are on the scene of an 18-wheeler wreck on Highway 49 at the Titus/Morris County line and because of dense fog in the area, crews are rerouting traffic in Titus County to FM 1735 and in Morris County to Hwy 144.

KLTV has a crew en route to the scene and will have more information shortly.
