Traffic is back to normal along Interstate 20 after the highway was shut down for hours overnight Thursday.

An 18-wheeler collided with two other vehicles near the Texas-Louisiana state line around 6:30p.m. Thursday.

Caddo Sheriff's Deputies said an 18-wheeler carrying grape juice concentrate and a Ford Focus travelling West hit each other. The 18-wheeler crossed the median and hit a pickup truck on the eastbound side. The driver of the pickup was killed in the crash.

Two people, including a passenger in the pickup and 18-wheeler were taken to Louisiana State Hospital in Shreveport.

While the Interstate was shutdown, traffic was rerouted on U.S. Highway 80 in Waskom.
