Truck hauling wind turbine tower involved in wreck on I-20 at Hwy 83/84

A three vehicle wreck involving a tractor trailer hauling the mid-section of a wind turbine tower forced Abilene police to close the Hwy 83/84 ramp to eastbound I-20 on Tuesday morning.

According to police, the back wheels of the trailer -- which was headed east on I-20 -- went off the road. The driver over corrected, causing the tower to roll off.

The driver of a Chevy Equinox slowed down on the Hwy 83/84 ramp to eastbound I-20 because of the wreck.

A Ford Mustang then rear ended the SUV.

The driver of the Equinox was transported to the hospital.

Police say she got the SUV less than 24 hours ago, replacing a vehicle that was involved in another wreck.

The driver of the Mustang was cited for failure to control speed.
