Tanker Wreck Slows Traffic

An early morning accident slowed traffic in Lufkin Friday. A tractor trailer heading north on the loop from Highway 59 lost its load. That load shifted and the trailer flipped over.

The feeder road heading north was shut down while highway authorities waited for a crane to clean up the mess.

Sections of the road were torn up after the accident, but the damage has already been fixed. The feeder road was later re-opened Friday afternoon.
