    (Published Tuesday, May 28, 2013)

    Fort Worth police say a truck driver was killed Tuesday morning after being forced off of Interstate 35W by another truck driver.

    Police said the big-rig overturned after it was forced off of the highway and onto the grassy shoulder by another truck driver, who did not stop after the crash.

    The driver of the overturned big-rig was pinned in the cab and pronounced dead at the scene.

    The crash closed the southbound lanes of Interstate 35W at Heritage Trace Parkway in far North Fort Worth for several hours.  

    The roadway reopened Tuesday afternoon after the crash was investigated and the scene was cleared.
