Eastbound I-20 Open Again After Wreck

A major accident involving an 18 wheeler and another 18 wheeler hauling a mobile home happened today on Interstate 20 near the Gregg-Smith County line, near the Joy Mountain Road exit.

The two 18 wheelers collided, causing the trailer carrying the mobile home to separate from the cab. The mobile home came to rest on the side of the road, and the cab of the truck travelled around 20 feet to rest in the woods on the side of the interstate.

The gasoline tank of the other 18 wheeler involved reportedly ruptured, causing a small diesel fuel leak on I-20.

Both drivers were taken to Good Shepherd Medical Center.

Eastbound traffic is now open on I-20, and the wreck has been cleared.
