ROBINSON (March 21, 2013)—A chain-reaction crash involving three 18-wheelers backed up traffic late Thursday afternoon on southbound Interstate 35 south of Waco.
The accident near the Moonlight Drive exit closed the right lane of th highway and the on-ramp south of Moonlight and backed up interstate traffic past Sun Valley Road.
Officials hoped to have the accident scene cleared before the evening commute.
The accident happened as traffic slowed down on the highway.
The driver of the first and second trucks began to brake, but the driver of the third didn’t, and the rig hit the rear of the second 18-wheeler, which in turn hit the first.
