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. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
