The identities of those hurt in the accident are still unknown. Nearly four hours after the collision was reported, the cargo of plastic palettes in the burning vehicle was still smoking. Hazmat teams have been enlisted to help clean up a fuel spill connected to the incident. Until the debris is cleared up, all of I-30’s westbound lanes close to Zion Road were shut down. At about four o’clock, the freeway reopened.

According to Samantha Davies of NBC 5, vehicles stranded in the congestion on the bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard were immobile. Westbound commuters were urged to take Highway 66 as a detour before crossing the lake. The President George Bush Turnpike’s southbound lanes and westbound I-30 traffic were unaffected.
