Police in Texarkana, Texas, are warning drivers to seek alternate routes after multiple crashes occurred on I-30 on Tuesday afternoon.
Around 3:45 p.m., the Texarkana Police Department issued a warning to drivers after a series of crashes on I-30.
“Vehicles as far as you can see in both directions. Interstate 30 is a mess right now after at least seven crashes out there in the last hour. Two of those crashes have included multiple 18-wheeler trucks. All but one of them are on the westbound side between Stateline Avenue and the Cowhorn Creek overpass, but traffic is also backed up on the eastbound side as people are slowing down to look at what’s going on the other side of the road,” officers said.
There is currently no information available on whether anyone was injured in the crashes.
Police are asking drivers to seek alternate routes as DPS crews work to remove crashed vehicles.
