High Traffic And Slick Roads Mean More Accidents

Interstate 20 in Smith County Sunday afternoon was backed up for miles with travelers, eager to get home after the Thanksgiving holiday.  The high volume of traffic combined with slick roadways kept DPS Troopers and other emergency workers busy clearing one accident after another.

"We have worked many wrecks out here," said Trooper Chad Skidmore.  "There's probably been around 30 to 40 wrecks on Interstate 20 in Smith County today."  DPS Troopers in Gregg County reported 30 accidents during the last couple of days.
