NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Following an 18-wheeler accident that occurred Wednesday morning, traffic on US Highway 59 is down to one lane in an area just north of the Angelina River.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the northbound side of US 59 has been narrowed down to just one lane as crews work to clear the wreck. Motorists traveling that section of US 59 are urged to use caution and prepare for delays.

On Tuesday morning, an 18-wheeled tanker rig went off the road to the right on the northbound side of US 59. The truck part of the rig wound up in a wooded area off of the highway.
