EL PASO, Texas -- A semi-truck apparently ran over the top of a pickup truck during a crash along the Gateway West on-ramp to Interstate 10 on Wednesday evening that seriously injured a motorist, eyewitnesses and authorities said.

The wreck backed up traffic on the westbound interstate from the Harnose exit to Horizon City during the evening rush hour as a helicopter could be seen landing on the highway at one point.

Witnesses told ABC-7 that a person was trapped inside the pickup and had to be freed by rescuers; sheriff's deputies said one crash victim was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

Sheriff's investigators said they were still trying to piece together exactly what triggered the collision in east El Paso County around 5 p.m.
