Traffic backup

Some people chose to take the access road instead of the interstate during a traffic jam Tuesday morning near the Fort Hood Street overpass.

Tuesday morning traffic was backed up in the westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 190/Interstate 14 in Killeen between Trimmier Road and Fort Hood Street.

A car was being towed from the shoulder on the Fort Hood Street overpass. Several Killeen Police Department vehicles were doing traffic control. 

The traffic was seen backed up about 8 a.m. By 8:30 traffic was flowing normally.

A small traffic jam that ended THREE hours ago is certainly BREAKING NEWS, especially when it involves a car being towed.[rolleyes][whistling]
