The wreck occurred at about 8:40 a.m. near the entrance ramp to Interstate 40. A tractor-trailer and a 22-foot box truck collided, and the box truck overturned, spilling its load of flooring on the highway, police said.

At least one person was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries that police said didn't appear to be life-threatening.
