Interstate 30 in Texarkana is back open after a major accident closed it for a good portion of the afternoon.
The westbound lanes were shut down between Summerhill and Richmond Road while crews were cleaning up a hazardous spill that came from the accident.
Police say the wreck happened when an eighteen-wheeler crashed into a ditch. The truck also hit the car in front of it, which then smashed into the next vehicle.
The truck driver says he had no option but to crash the big rig after he saw the traffic in front of him coming to a quick stop.
