WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A multiple-vehicle rollover crash closed all southbound lanes on I-35 in Waco. The wreck was cleared by 8:30 a.m. on Friday. 

TxDOT said this was a major wreck involving a jackknifed 18-wheeler and all traffic was diverted to the service road at exit 336.

The accident happened around 5 a.m. on Friday morning. A tractor-trailer hauling crushed cars was traveling southbound in the center lane when a smaller car changed lane in front of the semi, causing the semi to veer out of the way.

When the semi veered, it hit the middle barrier and flipped partially into the northbound lanes. Most of the truck remained on the southbound side, and chunks of the barrier were in the northbound lanes. 

The driver of the semi-truck suffered minor injuries. No other injuries were reported. 

With the assistance of a crane, Waco Fire, EMS and Tow King were able to clean up the accident within three hours.
