An 18-wheeler crash on Interstate 30 east at 4 p.m. Monday caused traffic to slow as emergency responders worked at the crash site.
The semi pulling a box trailer appeared to have overturned onto its side facing southwest, just west of the I-30 entrance ramp just past the Jefferson Street over pass. The front of the cab was facing southwestward at the side of I-30, just down from Texas Department of Public Safety’s Sulphur Springs offices on the edge of town. The top of the box trailer was open, spilling out contents onto the roadside. It was unclear if another vehicle with trailer was involved.
Traffic was diverted from that far right lane of traffic before the bridge. Those traveling through the area should plan to slow down or take an alternate route of travel, and are reminded to be alert for emergency responders and apparatus at work.
No additional details about the 18-wheeler crash were available at 4:40 p.m. Monday, Nov. 1, 2021.
