The section of I-20 between Merkel and Trent affected by the oil spill has been cleaned up and the east bound lane reopened.

Original Story

A truck leaking hydraulic fluid along I-20 between Merkel and Trent near MM 263 and Noodle Dome Road has caused slippery road conditions.

This has already reportedly caused several cars to lose traction and spin out.

The east bound lane headed toward Abilene has been shut down to prevent any further accidents.

TxDOT has reportedly been called out to the scene,

We have crew on the scene and will have more information as it becomes available.
