Road Debris Results in Multiple Crashes, 2-hour Closure of I-30

A section of Interstate 30 in Saltillo was shut down for more than 2 hours Wednesday night as a result of crashes caused by debris in the roadway. No one was reported to have sustained serious injuries, but multiple vehicles were reported to have become involved, according to sheriff’s reports.
Officials were first alerted at 9:56 p.m. that a semi appeared to have lost at tire, resulting in the vehicle hitting the guard rail on Interstate 30 west at mile marker 140. Deputies were dispatched to the location.
A second 911 caller 2 minutes later reported running over something in the road, damaging a bumper.
At 9:56 p.m., Hopkins County, Brinker, Saltillo and Pickton-Pine Forest firefighters were dispatched to assist at the location, where multiple vehicles had struck debris and the railing.
That section of Interstate 30 west was shut down to prevent further crashes as public safety and emergency officials worked to clear the roadway. When officials cleared at 11:40 p.m. Wednesday, multiple vehicles were reported to have sustained damages but no one reported to have been seriously injured, according to sheriff’s reports.
