There were a flurry of crashes in Gregg County earlier today. The rain had vehicles sliding all over the roadways. The worst was on I-20 just east of FM 2087, where four 18-wheelers and a car were involved. One 18-wheeler tried to avoid hitting three others by swerving. In the process, a passenger car hit the back of the trailer.
The driver of the car suffered two broken legs and was transported to the hospital. Several passing motorists stopped to help the driver until an ambulance arrived. More than a dozen accidents were reported in Gregg County.
