I-40 wreck ties up traffic during morning commute

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - A wreck on Interstate 40 caused a disruption for many peoples' morning commute.

Police say at around 8:00 Tuesday morning, a driver merging onto eastbound I-40, near Georgia, over-corrected after nearly colliding with a truck.

They then struck a guardrail, before swerving back into traffic, hitting another vehicle.

That section of the Interstate was shut down while crews worked to clean up the scene, and was opened back up within the hour.

The two drivers whose vehicles collided were treated and released from the hospital.
