A major truck accident on Texas Hwy 36 sent two people to the hospital on Tuesday morning when an 18 wheeler smashed into the highway divider, spilling steel pipes into the roadway, which were struck by surrounding vehicles.

The impact of the crash was so great, the semi-truck was completely totaled. The driver of the truck was transported to Scott & White in Temple via ground ambulance. One other driver was injured in the crash and was also transported to Scott & White.

Officials closed the highway while the pipes, demolished truck and diesel were cleaned, noting that the highway would be closed quite a while as a result of the Central Texas truck accident.

Investigations regarding what may have caused the driver of the truck to lose control and hit the barrier are still underway.
