COLLEGE STATION - A two vehicle accident caused quite the traffic mess this afternoon on Highway 30 in College Station.

The Department of Public Safety says a truck pulling a trailer with a blown tire was blocking the east bound lane of Highway 30, near William D. Fitch Parkway, causing traffic to slow.

That's when a College Station garbage truck reportedly going too fast rear-ended a pick up truck.

The driver of the garbage truck, Maurice Muckelroy, was taken to the College Station Medical Center for a possible broken wrist.



A major accident on Highway 30 near the Navasota River has been cleared.

The accident had a section of the highway shut down around 2 Thursday afternoon.

No other information is available at this time.

We'll update this story as soon as new information becomes available.
