I-35E Closed in Waxahachie After Wrong-Way Crash

Northbound Interstate 35E was closed in Waxahachie after a head-on crash involving a wrong-way driver and a tractor-trailer Wednesday evening.

Waxahachie fire officials said the driver of a Chevrolet Suburban was traveling south along U.S. Highway 77, which also serves as the I-35E access road, and for some reason entered the exit ramp from northbound I-35E.

The Suburban then collided with the 18-wheeler in the northbound lanes.

Officials said the female driver of the Suburban was awake and speaking with rescuers as she was transported by medical helicopter to a hospital.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was also transported to a hospital for minor injuries.
