18-wheelers collide, shut down 287 North in Decatur

A northbound 18-wheeler T-boned another 18-wheeler in front of the Comfort Inn on US 287 N in Decatur. The wreck occurred just after 10 tonight. The entire northbound lane is shut down, backing up traffic in a long line. One of the 18-wheelers was attempting to turn into the hotel and was stretched across both northbound lanes when the second one rammed into the middle of the turning tractor-trailer. One of the drivers was transported to Wise Regional with a neck injury.
