Wrecks In Dense Fog Block Texas Interstate Bridge

DALLAS (January 10, 2014) At least seven people were injured early Friday when more than a dozen vehicles crashed on an Interstate 30 bridge over a Dallas-area lake in dense fog, authorities said.

Emergency personnel closed much of the I-30 bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard because of the snarled traffic.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said seven people were taken to hospitals for treatment of injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.

Initial reports indicated three were injured.

A dense fog advisory was in effect at the time of the accident before dawn Friday involving several 18-wheelers.

Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Tony Hartzel said about 500 feet of concrete barriers was damaged.

Crews were working to make repairs and reopen the busy highway.
