Major Accident Sends Five To The Hospital

A major accident shuts down a busy Tyler Intersection.  Just Before 9:00 p.m., Saturday police say a car ran a red light at the intersection of Loop 323 and Old Jacksonville Highway and struck a pickup.  The pickup was then pushed into the side of a Brookshires' Tractor Trailer.  The trailer was damaged with a ruptured diesel fuel tank.  The Tyler Fire Department Hazardous Materials Team was called in to make sure everything was safe.  During this time, police were forced to close the intersection.

Five people were taken to local hospitals, but no one suffered any life-threatening injuries.  The driver of the car was cited for running a red light.
