One person is in the hospital with serious injuries after a dump truck overturned in downtown El Paso.
The crash happened at I-10 and Brown shortly before 4 p.m. Emergency crews rushed to the scene and blocked off several lanes. That created a traffic logjam for several hours.
The truck that flipped over belonged to El Paso Disposal. Witnesses say the driver lost control after traffic backed up ahead of him and he couldn't brake in time.
The accident caused gasoline from the dump truck to spill onto the interstate.
