FORT WORTH, Texas - Three people have been rescued after a Fort Worth accident in which the cab of an 18-wheeler tanker truck ended up dangling over an elevated Interstate 20 ramp.

Two people in a car that was trapped under the empty water tanker truck were rescued about three hours after the accident happened early Thursday.

A fire department ladder truck was used to help reach the trucker and ease him from the cab. He was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Both people extricated from the car also were receiving medical attention. Further details on their conditions were not immediately available.

The cause of the pre-dawn wreck is sought.
