College Station police and the Bryan TxDOT office report the southbound lanes of Highway 6 were closed Monday afternoon for six hours from two crashes.
The first, was a semi that blew a tire and struck a concrete barrier then leaked diesel fuel.
TxDOT spokesman Bob Colwell said that was followed by a distracted driver in a truck pulling an empty horse trailer hit a piece of TxDOT equipment.
Colwell said the equipment, called a “truck mounted attenuator”, was placed to protect their employees who were taking care of the diesel spill.
CSPD and TxDOT report no one was injured.
