Authorities are investigating an auto accident involving two 18-wheelers just north of San Manuel.

It all happened on the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 281 and State Highway 186 late Wednesday afternoon.

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) state troopers are investigating the accident.

State troopers said one tractor trailer sideswiped the other as it was traveling south.

Investigators believe wet road conditions contributed to the accident.

One of the two drivers was hospitalized with minor injuries.

Traffic was temporarily routed to the frontage road.
