18-Wheeler Vs. Small Car Collision Shuts Down Traffic

Westbound lanes on Loop 287 near Highway 59 are closed this morning after a major traffic accident.

An 18 wheeler was driving westbound when a small car coming off of Timberland Drive pulled in front of it. The 18 wheeler then t-boned the car, causing the truck to spill its load of lumber.

Traffic from the closed lanes are being diverted to Highway 59.

The driver of the car, Weston Adams, was taken to the hospital with possible injuries.

The driver of the truck was said to be okay.
