1 Killed in Truck Accident on I.H. 20 in Cisco, TX
Cisco, TX — December 21, 2023, one person was killed in a truck accident just before 3:45 in the afternoon along Interstate Highway 20.
According to reports, a 37-year-old man was traveling in a westbound 18-wheeler along Interstate Highway 20 in the vicinity just west of the Old U.S. 183 overpass when the accident occurred.
Officials indicate that the 18-wheeler was allegedly traveling at speeds deemed unsafe when the rainy and wet weather and road conditions are taken into account. The vehicle reportedly lost control due to hydroplaning, which caused it to veer off of the roadway, striking a guardrail and barreling down an embankment to the north side of the road before crossing over an onramp. It came to a stop in the median between the onramp and the service road with the trailer facing northwest and the cab facing east.
The sole occupant of the vehicle reportedly incurred critical injuries due to the accident; he was transported to a local medical center for immediate treatment. However, he was declared deceased before arrival.
The accident is under investigation by local authorities. No additional details are available at this point in time.
