Wreckage cleared from morning traffic woes

FORT WORTH -- No one had to go to the hospital, but an overturned tractor-trailer snarled traffic early Monday on East Lancaster Avenue.

The wreck was reported at 4:53 a.m. in the 6100 block of East Lancaster, near the intersection of East Loop 820, a police dispatcher said.

An ambulance was sent to the scene, but no one wanted to go to the hospital, said a dispatcher for MedStar Ambulance Service.

However, a ramp from southbound East Loop 820 to East Lancaster was blocked off as clean-up crews worked to remove the wreckage. The ramp was still closed at 7:45 a.m.

Meanwhile, an accident blocked the right lane of northbound Texas 360 at Pioneer Parkway in Arlington, forcing a delay of about seven minutes, according to Traffic.com.

Wreckage from both accidents was cleared later.
