UPDATE: 18-wheeler involved accident near TJC cleared

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Emergency crews responded to an 18-wheeler-involved accident in Tyler, Monday afternoon.

Authorities say the driver of the pick-up truck was traveling eastbound on Fifth Street near the intersection of Baxter, right by Tyler Junior College.

Due to the slick conditions, the pick-up truck fishtailed while attempting to change lines, sliding across traffic, striking a westbound 18-wheeler.

No one was injured in the crash, and only minor damages were reported.

The scene has been cleared and the roads are open to through-traffic.

The driver of the pick-up was cited for failure to control speed.
