I-20 bridge wreck
HOWARD COUNTY, Texas -

A semi truck led to the collapse of a major highway I-20 overpass overnight.

Authorities say the truck was headed west on Interstate 20 outside of Midland, when the driver lost control and crashed. The accident knocked out pillars supporting a bridge over the highway, and it fell onto the westbound lanes.

State troopers say those lanes will be closed for at least two days while the mess is cleaned up. No injuries have been reported.
