A series of I-35 truck accidents last week caused numerous injuries and several traffic delays on the busy freeway. The accidents included an incident in Dallas involving two 18 wheelers and a major fuel spill.

A DPS trooper and a witness rescued a driver from a fiery 18 wheeler accident on I-35 near Temple.
Details of the Dallas I-35 Truck Accident
Two 18 wheelers were involved in a serious I-35 truck accident just north of Dallas early Sunday evening. The collision also caused a fuel spill that closed down traffic on the interstate from Lake Dallas to south Denton. Local police reported that one of the tractor trailers caught fire, but that the fire did not ignite the fuel spilled on the pavement. The driver of a passenger car was also injured in the I-35 truck accident. He was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Details of the Waco I-35 Truck Accident
Heavy rains and wet conditions were blamed for an I-35 truck accident near Waco last Wednesday morning. The driver of a Suzuki SUV struck a concrete wall, then spun out and collided with an 18 wheeler near the mile marker 334 exit. Police on the scene told local reporters that the SUV may have hydroplaned on the wet asphalt, which caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle. The SUV driver was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
