By Staff
The drivers of two tractor trailers were taken to Jeff Anderson Regional Medical Center and Riley Hospital after their vehicles apparently collided Tuesday on Interstate 20/59. The collision in the west-bound lane happened at about 1:30 p.m. near the Kewanee exit at mile marker 168. Sgt. Curtis Moss of the Mississippi Highway Patrol said the accident occurred after the front tire blew on one of the trucks. The collision left both trucks one was hauling refrigerated chicken and the other was hauling milk in the interstate median.
