Tyler, TX (9/12/2020) – A multi-vehicle crash left a chain reaction of events that left Interstate 10 closed for hours.
The wreck happened around 9:25 a.m. Saturday morning when a horse trailer went off the roadway at the Smith-Gregg county line. Multiple vehicles were involved in the wreck, including 18-wheelers, motorcycles, and cars.
Luckly, no lives were taken. Only minor injuries were suffered.
According to fire personnel on scene, none of the horses in the trailer were injured.
The Westbound lanes of I-20 were open again just before 2 Saturday afternoon after being closed for almost 5 hours.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
