Billy Joe Spencer Killed in FedEx 18-wheeler Rollover Accident on LBJ Freeway in Dallas, TX

UPDATE (January 31, 2023): Details from authorities identified the victim as 60-year-old Billy Joe Spencer. Additional details remain under investigation.

Dallas, TX -- January 4, 2023, a driver was killed following an accident where a FedEx 18-wheeler overturned along LBJ Freeway.

Initial reports say the crash happened at around 4:30 p.m. along eastbound lanes near Hillcrest Road. The exact cause of the crash remains unclear at this time. The FedEx 18-wheeler was going along I-635 when it somehow veered into the median and overturned.

Other vehicles were involved, but no injuries were reported beyond the FedEx driver, whose injuries proved fatal. No further information is available at this time.

I can't help wondering what happened here, as I'm sure others are, as well. The fact multiple vehicles were involved yet only the 18-wheeler took serious damage isn't all that common. Perhaps something unusual went wrong which requires more thorough investigations that initial police reports will be able to handle.

Was there some kind of defect? Did a reckless driver force the truck off-road? Was the truck properly maintained? Was the truck not properly built to handle rollovers? Did the driver suffer a medical emergency? The sooner someone looks into these important questions, the sooner the victim's loved ones get some answers.
