15 Vehicles Involved In I-20 Pile Up

The rain slicked roadway was a factor in a major vehicle pile up, involving five 18-wheelers Saturday evening.

It happened just after 3 o'clock about five miles west of Canton on I-20, near F.M. 47.

Ten passenger cars and five 18 wheelers lost control and collided.

DPS officials are still trying to determine what caused the chain reaction accident. The roads were extremely slick at the time.

Officials said 11 people were transported to area hospital, none with serious injuries.

A crew worked to clear the wreck quickly, and both lanes of the interstate have reopened.
