AMARILLO -- Parts of I-40 are still closed after a crash involving two 18-wheelers.
It happened around three this afternoon, near Helium Road.
Officers say it all started with a minor accident just before the Soncy exit that backed up traffic.
That accident caused a semi driver to rear-end another semi near Helium Road.
The driver of the rear truck had to be taken to the hospital by LIFESTAR.
The driver of the front truck wasn't hurt.
Right now, that part of eastbound I-40 is still closed, westbound has one lane open.
