Chain reaction wreck ends with 2 injuries, 1 arrest

Tyler police arrested a man they say caused a chain reaction wreck.

Police say around 8 o'clock Thursday night, a Dodge pickup was trying to pass a car on Loop 323 and Shaw Street, when the driver lost control, went off the road, hit the median, and ended up in the path of an oncoming car.

The woman driving the car was taken to a Tyler hospital. Police say her injuries are not life-threatening.

Shortly after this wreck, police say an 18-wheeler slammed on the brakes to stop and hit both vehicles.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was treated for a cut to his face, caused by flying debris.

Investigators found that the driver of the pickup had an outstanding warrant on a previous traffic violation, and he was taken into custody.
