Accident Shuts Down Busy Exit

One of Longview's busiest exits off Interstate 20 had to be shutdown for a majority of the day Monday. It was closed after an accident involving a tanker truck full of oil.

It happened just before 8 a.m. on the eastbound exit ramp of I-20 and Estes Pkwy.

Authorities say the truck, hauling oil used in making asphalt was taking the exit too fast. The truck slid off the road, hit a patch of mud and flipped over. Only a small amount of the oil was lost.

The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
