Marble Slab Falls, Shatters on I-35E

Police and firefighters clean up after a slab of marble falls and shatters on I-35E in Carrollton.

Southbound traffic along Interstate 35E in Carrollton near Sandy Lake Road is slowed considerably due to a slab of marble that fell from a truck and shattered in the roadway.

The slab fell off of a truck at about 1:25 p.m. While the highway is not closed, debris is spread across three lanes and traffic is only able to pass on the shoulder.

Carrollton police have asked the Texas Department of Transportation to assist in the cleanup effort.  Meanwhile, police and firefighters are at the scene attempting to clear the roadway on their own.
