CARROLLTON, Texas (AP) — Two drivers have been hurt in an Interstate 35 wreck near Dallas that scattered a load of utility poles across the highway and backed up traffic.

Carrollton police say the accident before dawn Tuesday involved a car and an 18-wheeler hauling the poles on a flatbed trailer. The truck crashed into a concrete barrier and the load spilled onto I-35.

Police say both drivers suffered minor injuries.

Investigators are trying to determine what led to the accident. Traffic was diverted for hours during the cleanup.
