Hundreds of newspapers on road

A pickup truck hauling loads of newspapers lost its rear axle and tires while traveling on I-10 East, causing the driver to lose control and strike two other vehicles.  

The wreck happened shortly after 2 a.m. on I-10 near Hawkins.  Firefighters on the scene were seen stomping out burning newspaper that ignited on the side of the road.  

El Paso police closed a portion of I-10 for approximately three hours while they cleared the vehicles, and newspaper off the road.  I-10 opened back up shortly after 5 a.m.

No one was injured.
