18 Wheeler Accident Shuts Down I-20

       An early morning accident tied up the westbound lanes on Interstate 20 in Harrison county for most of the day. State troopers say before 8:00 am two 18 wheelers and a tree trimming truck collided in the westbound lanes.

The westbound lanes of I-20 were closed for most of the day from mile marker 610 to mile marker 604, just east off Hallsville. Emergency crews took the drivers of both 18 wheelers to local hospitals.

      The impact spilled the contents of one truck over the highway. The driver's conditions have not been released. Traffic was diverted from the main highway.
