KAUFMAN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A five-vehicle crash resulted in no serious injuries but a major interstate shut down Monday morning.
The crash happened at I-20 near County Road 314 in Kaufman County around 10:45 a.m.
A preliminary investigation by DPS indicates a big rig carrying diesel fuel was traveling west entering an area of I-20 that was down to one lane due to construction. The tanker driver did not see the slowing traffic ahead and struck a white Dodge pick-up.
The Dodge pick-up in-turn, struck a gray Hyundai sedan that was in front of it.READ MORE: Armed Woman Dies Following Allen Police Officer-Involved Shooting In Wendy's Parking
The tanker truck and trailer continued to slide and struck another box truck.
On impact, the tanker began to roll on its side and hit a third box truck.
The tanker was transporting diesel fuel which leaked on the roadway.
As a result of the spill, I-20 is closed in the westbound direction and will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time.
Westbound traffic is being diverted to FM 2728, then to Hwy 80.MORE NEWS: Child Dies Of Rare Infection Likely Linked To Arlington Splash Pad
