    (Published Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012)

    A Fed-Ex big-rig pulling tandem-trailers overturned on the northbound lanes of Interstate 35E at Commonwealth in Dallas Wednesday morning, closing the highway for several hours.

    Dallas County Sheriffs say the big-rig was one of 11 vehicles involved in the accident.

    Investigators said one vehicle tried to cut off the big-rig and caused a chain reaction.

    There have been no reported injuries in the crash.

    The driver suspected of cutting off the truck was taken into custody for not presenting a valid driver's license or insurance card.

    The crash was cleared and the roadway reopened at about 12:30 p.m.
