Truck, travel trailer smashed after flipping on I-20 at Merkel

A travel trailer pulled by a Ford F-250 truck and carrying members of a band flipped on Interstate 20 near Merkel about noon Thursday.

The unidentified band was traveling eastbound when police say a tire lost its tread.

The truck swerved, and the travel trailer transporting two of the band members overturned. The truck also flipped.

The two band members were transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said. Two other band members were in the truck at the time of the crash.

Police said citations were being issued because the two band members were illegally in the travel trailer while it was moving.
