An 18-wheeler wreck caused a traffic jam in the westbound lanes of Interstate 14 near Belton on Tuesday morning.

The truck and trailer were seen on their sides near the George Wilson Road exit of I-14 shortly before 8 a.m.

Crews, including a truck outfitted with a crane, worked to clear the scene.

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers were on scene. A spokesman for DPS in Bell County said he did not immediately have information on the accident.

On its Facebook page, the Belton Police Department said police were “working a semi accident with a diesel spill,” and one lane of the highway and the service road were shut down. They reopened later Tuesday morning.

A call to Belton police for more information was not immediately returned.
