TEXAS: 18-Wheeler Crashes, Explodes and Engulfs I-35E Ramp In Flames
At least one person was killed when an 18-wheeler crashed and exploded, leaving the ramp from westbound Interstate-20 to southbound I-35E engulfed in flames.
The semi was carrying a load of lumber. Flames lit the sky in the early morning and fallen wood sparked fires on the ground below the ramp. Firefighters tossed wood from the overpass onto the ground as they worked to try and clear the scene.
Crews with Dallas Fire Rescue are on the scene. As of 7:30 a.m. most of the fire on the ramp had been extinguished, and the fires underneath were completely out.
