TxDot provided cleanup after an 18 wheeler lost a load of particle board at the 146 mile marker of west bound I-30 on Monday, August 4.
Traffic was diverted to the service road. A family driving an Arkansas rental car caught fire while attempting to cross a ditch to get back on I-30 became stuck in the mud. The heat from their car caught the grass on fire which then also burned the car.
