WACO (July 16, 2014) Traffic on Loop 340 at the Bagby Avenue overpass in Waco was snarled and moving extremely slowly early Wednesday afternoon after a traffic crash involving an 18-wheeler.

The crash shut down a portion of eastbound Loop 340 including both the Dallas and Austin on-ramps to Interstate 35.

The accident, which involved an 18-wheeler, a hearse, and a passenger car, was reported at around 12:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Officers say the passenger car rear-ended the hearse and then was hit by the 18-wheeler, which forced the car off the highway.

The woman who was driving the car was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center for treatment, but information about her injuries wasn’t available.

The drivers of the hearse and the 18-wheeler were not hurt, police said.
