The Dallas County Sheriff's Department said a vehicle had hit its brakes in front of the truck, which caused the parts to fly onto the road. Deputies said there are about 100 yards of parts on the road.

"It smells pretty bad out here," a deputy on the scene said.

Only one lane of traffic was able to get through eastbound I-30 into the evening as crews cleaned up the scene.
