A Fort Worth man has died after his SUV traveled off an Interstate 35W bridge Tuesday in Fort Worth.[[405040125,R]]
The Tarrant County medical examiner identified the driver as 46-year-old Stephen Dean.
Fort Worth fire officials said an 18-wheeler was going northbound on Interstate 35W near southeast 28th Street at about noon when it struck a concrete median barrier, sending the barrier into the southbound lanes.
Accident investigators have not yet determined whether the SUV was struck by the barrier, the tractor-trailer or another vehicle, or if it went off the bridge trying to avoid a collision.
All lanes in both directions of I-35W were closed for several hours while investigators worked at the scene. Traffic resumed after 6 p.m., according to North Tarrant Express.
