All I-20 lanes back open

January 8, 2008

Westbound lanes on I-20 are open again.

They were shut down at the Washington Road exit earlier this morning during rush-hour traffic because of a bad accident. It involved an 18-wheeler and three other vehicles.

Dispatch confirms some injuries, but we don't know how severe they are.

Viewers were calling our newsroom all morning, reporting stand-still traffic on the interstate. One caller says he sat still for half an hour.

The area has been cleared, and we're told traffic is moving smoothly again.
