Drunk Driver Shuts Down I-40 For 3 Hours

A drunk driver is apparently the reason all east bound lanes of I-40 were shut down for three hours.

Amarillo Police say the driver of a pickup truck drove from the frontage road over the grass median onto the main interstate lanes.

The driver of a semi going east then swerved to avoid hitting the pickup truck, but the truck hit the trailer of the semi.  The semi rolled onto its right side.

That shut down the east bound lanes of I-40 from Soncy to Bell for three hours late last night into this morning.

The pickup truck driver, Miguel Flores, was booked into jail for DUI.
