Four additional vehicle occupants from both the passenger vehicles and 18-wheelers were taken to local hospitals with moderate/severe injuries.
Interstate 20 eastbound was closed for approximately eight hours as investigators and vehicle recovery crews worked to clear the roadway. The crash investigation remains active and ongoing.
In 2020, Troop F has investigated 39 fatal crashes resulting in 42 deaths.
