One Killed in Dallas, TX, 18-wheeler Accident at I-45 & I-20

Dallas, TX -- January 23, 2017, a person was killed due to an accident where a pickup drove the wrong way on I-45, hitting two 18-wheelers.

Dallas Police and emergency personnel were called to the accident scene at around 3:00 p.m. It occurred near the the I-45/I-20 interchange.

According to preliminary reports, a 2012 red Ford pickup somehow entered the highway going southbound in northbound lanes of traffic. As it did so, it crossed paths with two oncoming 18-wheelers, neither of which avoided the accident in time. A head-on collision occurred between the three vehicles.

The driver of the pickup was in critical condition following the accident. EMS transported him to a nearby hospital, but he later died there. No other injuries were reported.

At this time, authorities have yet to determine what factors were involved in the accident. Their investigations are ongoing.

Map of the Area


This accident is beyond perplexing reading these early reports. Depending on how close to the interchange this occurred, it's very confusing where exactly this pickup could have entered opposing traffic lanes. Sometimes you'll see this sort of thing at night or when alcohol is involved, but the crash happening in broad daylight hours makes it all that much more troublesome.

Whatever the case is, I can't make any sort of conclusions until further investigations have been done. As more details come to light, perhaps the possible implications of this accident will be more clear.
