I-40 Open After Deadly Accident

Amarillo Police have opened all lanes and all on and off ramps on I-40 East in Amarillo.

They had closed the interstate going east between Georgia and Ross earlier after one person died in an accident on I-40 East between Washington Street and the Interchange.

Amarillo Police say 73 Year Old James Donald Buckley was headed west when his SUV crashed into the barrels that split I-40 and Canyon Drive.

He did not have his seatbelt on.

Rescue crews told our photojournalist on scene they had to cut off the top of his S.U.V. to get to him.

When they did, they found he had died.
