UPDATE: All lanes back open on I-35

BRUCEVILLE-EDDY, TX (KXXV) - UPDATE 5 p.m.: Waco PD and TxDOT are now saying all lanes are open on I-35 after Friday morning's wreck around mile marker 314 in Bruceville-Eddy.

Traffic was backed up after two 18-wheelers were involved in a crash, and another got stuck in the mud on I-35 near Bruceville Eddy.  It happened just before 2 a.m. Friday morning near mile marker 314. Traffic was diverted onto the service road at exit 315 southbound and 314 northbound for hazmat cleanup. The left travel lane on the southbound side was closed while workers replaced the concrete barriers damaged in the crash. The shut down lasted around four hours.

An 18-wheeler going southbound hit the concrete barriers, which caused another semi-truck to crash and cross over into the northbound lanes, and another trailer truck to go airborne. This caused the delay, as those trucks are responsible for knocking out 15 concrete barriers that separate traffic. DPS said traffic stayed on the service road for several hours until those barriers were replaced.

One of the 18-wheelers was carrying drilling mud, and that is what caused the major mess on the road. Crews worked to clear that drilling mud on the interstate. Authorities were unsure as to why the crash happened but were investigating the scene.

The drivers of two of the semi trailers involved in the accident were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, but no other injuries were reported. They have since been released from the hospital according to Texas state trooper D.L Wilson.
