A man has died after slamming into the back of an 18-wheeler late Tuesday evening in Hunt County.
The crash happened just before midnight Tuesday night along Interstate 30 near County Road 2646, just outside of Royce City.
According to police, the crash happened as traffic was coming to a stop because of a backup resulting from an earlier collision. The driver of a grease truck slammed into the back of the 18-wheeler, which was carrying two men, police said.
The driver of the grease truck was found dead at the scene. The two people inside the 18-wheeler were unharmed, police said.
Investigators expected the scene to be cleared before rush hour Wednesday morning.
