I-20 overpass in Lindale hit by 18-wheeler

Posted: Updated:

LINDALE (KYTX)  - A portion of I-20 had to be shut down briefly this afternoon in Lindale after an 18-wheeler hit the overpass at the Highway 69 intersection.

Lindale Police tells KYTX CBS 19 that after inspection by DPS, the overpass was deemed structurally safe and traffic was opened up again.

The 18-wheeler reportedly lost its flat bed when containers too large to go underneath the bridge hit the overpass.

Officers say no one was injured in the mishap.

The intersection at 69 is still blocked off while officers clear the scene, but police say it should be opened up within a couple of hours
