Two semi trucks are rolled over and multiple smaller vehicles are involved in the crash. Traffic is stopped going southbound.

The Slaton Police Department sent out a notice via its Facebook page just before 11 a.m. today. Drivers are asked to use caution or avoid that area.

The Texas Department of Public Safety reports the cash initially started when the driver of a semi was trying to cross Highway 84 to Country Road 211.

The driver of a motorhome traveling east saw the semi and tried to avoid hitting it. That is when the motorhome hit the rear of the semi, according to DPS.

As traffic slowed down near the scene, other crashes were being reported. DPS says there was a total of five crashes in that area.

No injuries were reported from any of those crashes. Crews continue to work to clear the roadway in that area.
