Highway 114 was completely shut down following a crash involving two 18-wheelers near the Texas Motor Speedway on Tuesday.
The truck accident occurred at the intersection of I-35W just after 11 p.m. Tuesday night.
According to police, one of the 18-wheeler trucks was turning onto the southbound I-35W frontage road when another 18-wheeler that was going eastbound on Hwy 114 crashed into it.
Luckily, no one sustained any injuries but both trucks incurred damage and a large amount of diesel fuel spilled onto the highway as a result of the crash.
Authorities closed down both directions of Hwy 114 until mid-Tuesday morning to clean up the wreckage.
