ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Both lanes of I-20 are now open. The south service road is still shut down

The Odessa Police Department and Odessa Fire Rescue responded to an auto-pedestrian crash in the area of I-20 and West County Road. A pedestrian was on the side of the roadway working on a vehicle. Somehow, the 18-wheeler struck the disabled vehicle/pedestrian, causing the pedestrian injuries.

The person was taken with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the 18-wheeler then took out a road sign and a power pole.

That driver was not taken to the hospital.

Traffic is expected to be backed up for quite some time.
