UPDATE: I-20 Traffic Being Detoured Through Tyler
TylerPaper.com image
(AP)-- Traffic is still being detoured from Interstate 20 through Tyler after an overnight chain collision involving six 18-wheelers and a car.

Two people in the car were killed in the crash on Interstate 20 eastbound. A third person was injured, but it is not clear at this time which vehicle that person was in. The interstate is shut down east bound while emergency crews clear the wreckage from the fiery crash and clean up fuel spills.

A spokesman with the Texas Department of Transportation said cleanup efforts could take awhile, and it's unknown how long the interstate will be closed.

Officials said the accident began when an 18-wheeler rolled over and caught fire. Details weren't immediately available on the two adults who died in the crash, but they were riding together in the one car involved in the wreck.
