LINCOLN, AL (WBRC) -

The westbound lanes of I-20 are still shut down near the Lincoln exit (168) after an 18-wheeler collided with a passenger vehicle earlier this afternoon.

Clean up continues at the scene of the accident and state troopers are diverting traffic to Highway 78 to avoid the traffic snarls affecting both west- and eastbound lanes.

There are no fatalities reported but a LifeSaver helicopter was on scene earlier.
