    A fuel spill closed the eastbound side of Interstate 20 in Kaufman County Saturday evening, officials say.

    Two crashes, one of which involved a wrecker towing an tractor-trailer, shut down the highway after one of the vehicles involved started to leak fuel onto the road, according to the College Mound Fire Department.

    Nine people were involved in the crashes, which happened just after 5:30 p.m., and three were taken to area hospitals -- two by ambulance and one by helicopter. Everyone who was injured was expected to recover, officials said.

    A hazmat crew responded to the scene and was still working to clear the spill as of 9 p.m. Saturday.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.
