Kilgore, Texas (KETK) — An overturned gas truck has blocked off two roads in Kilgore.
The truck overturned at Woodlawn and Highway 259. Luckily, the truck is not leaking, but it is blocking the roadway causing a traffic jam in all lanes.
According to the Kilgore Police Department, the truck, which is full of propane, is believed to have been attempting to make a left turn, and although they do not know the exact cause of the accident, they think it may be speed-related.
Officials are asking drivers to avoid the area until they can get it cleaned up which will probably take two to three hours.
KETK will update information as it becomes available.
