Wreck in fog closes North Texas bridge


DALLAS (AP) — At least seven people were hurt when more than a dozen vehicles wrecked on an Interstate 30 bridge over a Dallas-area lake during fog.

Emergency personnel on Friday closed much of the I-30 bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard for hours amid the snarled traffic. Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says seven people were transported to hospitals for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

A dense fog advisory was in effect at the time of the accidents before dawn Friday. Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Tony Hartzel (HARTS’-el) says at least six semis and eight passenger vehicles were part of the crashes.

Hartzel says about 500 feet of concrete barriers suffered damage and crews continued working Friday afternoon to make repairs and reopen the busy highway.
