Interstate 35 lanes reopen after crash

by Fidel Rodriguez, Jr.

Interstate 35 lanes were reopened just before noon Tuesday after a crash involving two tractor-trailers that struck two utility poles jammed highway traffic in Selma for most of the morning.

Selma police were called to I-35 near Evans Road around 3:40 a.m. Tuesday, when a northbound tractor-trailer struck the concrete median and the base of a CPS Energy pole and jackknifed, said Selma police spokesman Ken Roberts.

A second tractor-trailer then crashed into the first, Roberts said, and also jackknifed, blocking the northbound lanes. The pole, meanwhile, twisted precariously, threatening traffic on I-35 south.

"The pole was in danger of toppling over and dropping live wires on the highway," Roberts said, "so (the Texas Department of Transportation) decided to close both directions of I-35."
