An 18-wheeler accident in Walker County had traffic backed up for hours.

According to Huntsville police, the driver was southbound on I-45 Thursday evening and didn't realize the lanes merged into one. He allegedly ran into the side of a barricade and caught his gas tank on fire.

He was able to escape without injury.

However, while police were cleaning up that accident, another collision involving a car and another 18-wheeler occurred in the traffic that was backed up on I-45. Police say the driver of the car died.
