A crash involving a fire truck and a pickup truck closed a portion of Interstate 35E in Denton Thursday morning.
It happened after 5 a.m. along the northbound lanes of I-35E between Mayhill Road and Texas 288. That section of the highway was closed for several hours as first responders worked.
The Denton Fire Department said the driver of the pickup truck was in serious condition and had to be rescued from the severely damaged vehicle.
No firefighters were hurt and no other injuries were reported.
By 6:30 a.m., traffic was backed up to Corinth Street, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. All lanes were reopened a few hours later.
Authorities so far haven't said what led up to the collision.
