The northbound lane of I-35 at University Parks Drive experienced a three-hour closure shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday because of an accident involving two large trucks early Tuesday morning.

Captain Patrick Veselka of the Waco Fire Department said the incident occurred between two 18-wheelers. One of the trucks involved was a FedEx truck.

No one experienced severe injuries, said Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton of the Waco Police Department.

Veselka said the accident was caused by a tire blowout from one of the 18-wheelers. Although the accident was sizable, no one was transported to the hospital for significant injuries.

The traffic was cleared by late morning, Swanton said.
