DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A big rig crash has shutdown the eastbound lanes of Interstate-20 in the southern part of Dallas County.

The driver of the gravel hauler is believed to have hit an overhead sign near St. Augustine Drive just before 9:30 a.m. The impact knocked the sign down, flipped the trailer of the semi on it’s side and spilled large rocks, gravel and hydraulic fluid over the freeway.
