Two Drivers Injured After Three Eighteen Wheelers Wreck

  Stormy conditions Friday morning caused three tractor trailers to wreck on Interstate 20.

  Wet roads caused one of the big rig drivers to lose control. Investigators say one 18-wheeler was headed East when it hydroplaned, crossed over the median, and struck another 18-wheeler head on.

  One of the drivers jumped out of the cab as his truck caught fire.

  A third truck driver ran into the median as he swerved to miss the two wrecked trucks. One of the drivers, 43-year old Servando Reyes, was taken to Parkland Hospital in Dallas to be treated for burns. Another driver, David Stanley of White Oak was treated at Mother Frances Hospital.
