DPS: Speeding vehicle hits pickup, sends it careening into 18-wheeler

Posted: Updated:
GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An accident involving three vehicles slowed traffic for awhile on I-20 near the Liberty City exit Thursday afternoon.

The accident was reported on I-20 eastbound, and a speeding driver was to blame, DPS on the scene said.

The officer said that a driver was speeding on I-20 in his pickup near exit 582 when he sideswiped another pickup, also heading east. The second pickup was sent careening into an 18-wheeler, bounced off the 18-wheeler, and crashed into a grassy area near the eastbound access road.

Amazingly, everyone walked away from the accident.
