Tight turn causes brief traffic shutdown

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - The driver of a tractor-trailer carrying windmill fan blades caused a brief traffic shutdown on Central Freeway.

Just before 9:30 a.m. on Monday, Wichita Falls police officers were called out to the northbound lanes on Central Freeway for a traffic hazard.

Little is known at this time, but Newschannel 6 crews on scene say it appears the driver of the truck misjudged a turn for the exit to Old Iowa Park Road, causing the truck to become jack-knifed on the road.

Authorities have since been able to get the truck straightened out, and traffic is moving normally again.
