Salado: Jackknifed 18-Wheeler Backs Up I-35 Traffic

SALADO (January 15, 2014) An 18-wheeler hauling a long concrete beam jackknifed Wednesday afternoon on Interstate 35 in Salado and the end of the beam and the dolly on which it rested went over the hood of a car and then struck a pickup, the Texas Department of Transportation said.

No injuries were reported, but the accident slowed southbound traffic as crews worked to straighten out the rig, whose cab ended up on the shoulder of the highway, while the beam and rear dolly crossed both lanes of the frontage road.

The accident happened early Wednesday afternoon just south of FM 2484 on the north side of Salado.

Traffic was beginning to flow normally by around 3:30 p.m.
