Wreck with pin-in closes major Longview road


An injury wreck with a pin-in had all northbound lanes and one southbound lane on Eastman Road at Neiman Marcus shut down for hours Wednesday morning.

According to officer Mitchell on scene, a salt water tanker truck was unable to stop at the red light at Eastman and Neiman Marcus because of a possible brake failure,  and slammed into the Ford Explorer in front of it, causing the Explorer to hit a mini van in front of it. The woman driving the Explorer was temporarily pinned in the vehicle. She was transported to a Longview hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The three people in the mini van were treated at the scene.

All lanes have been re-opened and traffic is back to normal in the area.
