Crash Slows Afternoon Traffic in Diboll

Rain was partly to blame for an 18-wheeler accident in Diboll Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators said the truck was headed north on Highway 59 when he stepped on his brakes. The truck's brakes locked up and the 18-wheeler started to skid on the slick road. The truck then crashed into two cars also headed north.

There were no serious injuries, but the truck driver was ticketed for speeding.
