All lanes of the Interstate 30 bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard are open again, a Texas Department of Transportation camera shows, after a crash involving two overturned tractor-trailers forced lane closures for most of the day Monday.
Two 18-wheelers overturned early Monday morning at the I-30 bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard -- an incident that closed the highway for several hours.
Both semis reportedly jackknifed, closing both the eastbound and westbound lanes of traffic at about 3 a.m. By 6 a.m., one westbound lane was opened to clear cars that had been blocked along the bridge.
One tractor-trailer was carrying meat products and the other had boxes, according to police.
Police at the scene said there was an earlier accident in the area. One vehicle pulled off the road and another was reported to be on a nearby road.
At least one person was taken to a hospital by a medical helicopter.
Dallas Fire-Rescue hazmat was also at the scene to assist Rowlett Police because of a fuel spill at the location.
The eastbound lanes of the highway remained closed through Monday afternoon.
