Three injured in Beaumont 18-wheeler accident

Posted: Updated:

An accident involving an tractor-trailer on Interstate 10 sent three people to the hospital Tuesday night. The 18-wheeler had slowed because of construction work, leading to the crash near the Laurel Street exit.

Police tell 12 News the driver of an SUV failed to control speed and slammed into the back of the big rig.  That caused another SUV to crash.

The jaws of life had to be used to free one of the victims.
