As responders got that mess all cleaned up, a second accident happened just a couple miles down the road. The second crash required a call to the Lorena Fire Department as all the Bruceville-Eddy firefighters had their arms full with the first crash site.

First responders are still assessing the second crash at the time of this update. More details will be available later.
