SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - Emergency crews are on the scene of a multiple 18-wheeler accident on Interstate 20 in the eastbound lanes. The accident is near mile marker 559 which is also near Jim Hogg Road, according to Smith County Department of Public Safety.

DPS said an 18-wheeler carrying produce had pulled over on the side of the road for truck repair when another 18-wheeler carrying oil hit it from behind because it could not change lanes in time. A passenger in the second truck was taken to ETMC with minor injuries and Linale Fire Department is cleaning up a minimal oil spill from the accident. 

DPS and Lindale FD are on the scene. KYTX CBS 19 has a crew at the wreck and will bring more updates as they become available.
