Accident Shuts Down Gregg County Interstate

Several 18-wheelers crash on Interstate-20 in Gregg county this afternoon. It happened around 2:00p.m. on Eastbound I-20, just east of Liberty city near Highway 135.

DPS troopers say an 18-wheeler was cut off in traffic by another vehicle, and crashed into another 18-wheeler as the driver tried to swerve. Two other 18-wheelers stopped behind the wreck, but were hit by another 18-wheeler from behind sending one crashing into a pickup and trailer.

Traffic was shut down eastbound and diverted off on Highway 135. Four people were taken to hospitals, but miraculously no one was seriously injured. The interstate was shut down for over two hours before being reopened.
