A lunchtime accident in Nolanville blocked U.S. Highway 190 Wednesday while emergency responders cleared the highway of debris from an overturned truck.

A large delivery truck crashed into a trailer attached to a Chevrolet pickup truck around 12:30 p.m. in Nolanville.

The crash happened when the driver of the Chevrolet braked because of a traffic jam on U.S. 190 westbound caused by road construction. When the Hotline Delivery Systems truck hit the trailer, the trailer and the Chevrolet flipped.

Paramedics transported a 31-year-old male passenger in the Chevrolet to Scott & White Hospital in Temple, said Lester Holsey Jr., Nolanville police chief; the man suffered neck injuries.

The flip scattered building supplies across the roadway. The trailer carried rolls of electrical wire belonging to Paul's Electrical.

"I felt the truck hit my trailer. The next thing I knew was we're stopped and upside down," said Brook Baker, the driver of the Chevrolet.

The accident blocked traffic until just before 2 p.m. while a wrecker towed both vehicles and responders cleaned the road.
