Longview Police have closed the northbound lanes as well as one southbound lane of Eastman Road at Neiman Marcus Parkway because of a two-vehicle wreck, according to the Longview Police Department.
The wreck happened during the 6:00 am hour on Wednesday when a salt water tanker experienced possible brake failure and the driver was unable to stop at the red light of the intersection. The tanker hit a Ford Explorer in front of it, and the Explorer then hit a mini-van in front of it.
The driver of the Explorer, who has not been identified, was pinned in the vehicle and had to be freed by emergency crews. She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Three people were in the mini-van. They had minor injuries and were treated on-scene.
Police are investigating the cause of the wreck.
