What to do if you’ve been in a car accident
An 18-wheeler carrying frozen chicken on westbound Interstate 20 left the road and overturned early Tuesday morning, spilling boxes into the roadway and causing extensive traffic delays.
The driver said he blacked out prior to the crash, according to Arlington police, and he suffered what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
Two outside lanes are closed on westbound I-20 prior to Collins Street and cleanup is expected to take two to three more hours, police said a little before 8 a.m. The accident occurred around 3:45 a.m., police said, and the driver was taken to a local hospital.
Pictures from the scene showed flattened boxes scattered in the roadway.
Drivers on westbound I-20 were advised to take Texas 161 to Pioneer Parkway or I-30 around the overturned 18-wheeler.
