I-35 Reopened After 25 Vehicle Pileup

11-17-04 - Interstate 35 is back open today after a 25-vehicle pileup closed the vital highway into Oklahoma for a while overnight north of Gainesville.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says at least three tractor-trailer rigs were involved in the chain-reaction collision northbound on the Texas end of the Red River Bridge.

That blocked all northbound traffic with no alternate route available.

The DPS says three people were taken to nearby hospitals with minor injuries.

Gainesville is about 60 miles north of Dallas.
