Overturned semi shuts down I-10 EB near Tornillo

EL PASO COUNTY, TX — A semi-truck overturned Tuesday morning, closing all eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 near Tornillo, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

The crash happened on the eastbound lanes at mile marker 62 and was first reported by the TxDOT at 8:14 a.m.

It was unclear what led up to the event, but all eastbound lanes were blocked as a tow crews worked to move a rolled semi from out of the median.

The closure was expected to stay in place for at least two hours, but by 9:11 a.m., the right lane was reopened to traffic.

At around 10:22 a.m., the scene had been cleared and all lanes were reopened.
