DPS said the truck crashed through the median and into oncoming traffic, hitting two vehicles and knocking them onto the eastbound access road.
No one was seriously injured.
Eastbound traffic on I-20 was backed up three to five miles from exit 309 to 313.

They will then open up one lane of traffic.
