ABILENE, Texas -

A freightliner overturned spilling scrap metal all over both lanes of I-20 Friday morning.

A truck was getting on I-20 heading east when it struck a guardrail and flipped over.  It was pulling a dump trailer filled with scrap metal that spilled out onto both lanes of the interstate.

A driver behind the freight liner was unable to stop in time and hit the scrap metal.

No one was injured in the accident. I-20 was shut down for a several hours.
