Traffic Alert: I-10 West closed in Winnie due to overturned 18 wheeler
TRAFFIC ALERT: We just checked with DPS and want to let you know I-10 West remains closed near the Highway 124 exit in Winnie due to an overturned 18 wheeler.
The tractor trailer overturned at about 6:30 a.m. It isn't carrying any hazardous materials but is leaking diesel and a cleanup is underway, according to DPS Lt. Chuck Havard, who says there are no reported injuries. I-10 East remains open.
Motorists are advised to find an alternate travel route and to expect delays.
The severe weather in Southeast Texas could significantly delay cleanup efforts.
