I-20 WB reopened near state line after SUV/semi accident


Traffic on I-20 westbound at Exit #3 near the Louisiana/Texas state line is flowing again after an accident involving an SUV and 18-wheeler.

The crash happened shortly after 11:30 a.m. According to the Greenwood Police Department, a witness says a Frac Tech convoy was exiting the interstate at Exit 3 with traffic backed up. The driver of the suburban switched from the left to the right lane to avoid hitting the convoy. The driver switched back to the left lane and clipped the back end of one of the Frac Tech trucks.

The driver of the Suburban was airlifted to the LSU Medical Center and a passenger was transported by ambulance. Their conditions have not been released.

I20 westbound was closed for just under an hour.
