The south bound lanes of 83/84 were closed temporarily Friday morning near where the road splits coming into Abilene due to an 18-wheeler accident.

The 18-wheeler noticed a car stopped at the stop sign, but was traveling too fast to brake in time. In an attempt to turn in order to avoid the vehicle, the 18-wheeler made a sudden south turn, causing it to flip.

The metal the 18-wheeler was carrying spilled over the road; however, no one was injured in the incident.
