Major Four Vehicle Accident Kills One And Stops Traffic

A major four vehicle accident kills a Florida man and stops traffic on Interstate 20.   It happened around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday by Highway 135 in Gregg County. The East bound lane on I-20 between FM 3053 and Highway 135 was closed for several hours.   DPS says a driver of an 18 wheeler came over a hill and did not realize traffic had stopped because of construction. The driver then slammed into another 18 wheeler, which then pushed an SUV into the woods. A fourth car sitting next to the 18 wheelers was also hit.   The driver of the 18 wheeler who caused the accident died at the scene. Details on other injuries are not available.
