A 12-vehicle crash involving a dump truck occurred on U.S. Highway 190 in Killeen Friday afternoon near Rosewood Drive.
Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said it’s unclear why the dump truck apparently lost control and “ping-ponged” into 11 other vehicles in the eastbound lanes of the highway, which is under construction. No injuries were reported.
Traffic in the eastbound lanes was completely blocked as crews cleared debris and a spilled liquid that resulted from the crash. A hazardous material team from Austin was called in to help in the clean-up, Miramontez said.
She said it was unclear if the spilled liquid was fuel or another material, and the crash is still under investigation.
