Fatal And Fiery Collision On I-20 Near Canton

A fatal and fiery collision on Interstate 20 near Canton stalled traffic for hours, Saturday.  A viewer sent us several pictures of the crash through "See it, Snap it, Send it."  The pictures show a massive fire ball shooting a hundred feet in the air. 

Around 10:00 a.m, Saturday the Department of Public Safety said the driver of a F-150 lost control and crashed into an 18-wheeler, catching them both on fire.  The woman driving the F-150 was killed.  The east-bound lanes of I-20 were shut down for about five hours, as crews worked to clean up the fuel and debris.

DPS said the woman who was killed has not yet been identified.
