    The westbound side of Interstate 30 in Grand Prairie is closed at Loop 12 after a car caught fire on the highway Sunday night, police say.

    Lanes on the westbound side of Interstate 30 in Grand Prairie have reopened after they were closed for about two hours Sunday when a car caught fire on the highway, police say.

    A crash involving three cars on I-30 near MacArthur Boulevard caused oil to spill from one of the vehicles and catch fire, according to the Grand Prairie Police Department.

    Police said the fire was out and the crash cleared as of 7:30 p.m., but the Texas Department of Transportation needed to inspect the roadway to ensure it was not damaged by the fire.

    Lanes on the westbound sound of I-30 reopened around 8:30 p.m.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
