Killeen Police investigate a crash involving an 18-wheeler.

Officers were dispatched to Interstate 14 at approximately 10:01 p.m., in reference to a multiple vehicle crash.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a SUV was traveling eastbound in the outside lane on I-14, when the driver struck a disabled vehicle that was on the side of the roadway. An 18-wheeler, that was also traveling eastbound in the inside lane, attempted to take evasive action, struck the SUV and the edge of the bridge, causing it to overturn.

No injuries were reported.

The City of Killeen and TXDOT are currently taking part in cleanup efforts and are expected to be completed by mid afternoon.

The eastbound lanes continue to remain closed. We will update the community once the area is open.
