Pickup Truck Crash Causes Major I-35 Delays
UPDATE 4:50 PM: TxDOT's Jodi Wheatley reports that the crash scene has been cleared and traffic was slowly beginning to flow north. Drivers should expect slight delays.
Northbound Interstate 35 traffic was at a standstill Monday afternoon after a pickup hauling a trailer crashed in the area of Industrial Blvd in Temple.
The crash was reported by TxDOT shortly before 3 PM. As of 3:50 PM, traffic was moving at a snail's pace well south of Midway drive in Temple. The photo above is from a TxDOT camera located just south of Loop 363 and pointed north.
TxDOT's Jodi Wheatley predicted it may take another hour for emergency crews to clear the scene. Drivers planning to head north along I-35 in Temple should either get off at Exit 298 and take Loop 363 north around Temple or find another alternative route, such as Highway 317 just west of Temple.
