Ryder box truck and pickup crash on East 610 Loop

A 5:00 p.m. crash yesterday between a Ryder box truck and a pickup pulling a trailer reduced the East 610 Loop to a single lane of traffic yesterday. The accident was in the southbound lanes near Market Street. The box truck driver and a passenger had to be extracted from the cab of the box truck and were transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The Ryder truck was loaded with industrial batteries, some of which spilled, but thanks for the quick response of the hazmat team the spill was contained. The pickup truck and trailer jackknifed. The cause of the accident wasn’t listed in Channel 11’s report.
