Semi-Truck Overturns in Dallas, Trailer Falls From Elevated Freeway

NBCUniversal, Inc.

The ramp from Woodall Rodgers Freeway to southbound 345 was shut down Tuesday afternoon after a semi-truck driver lost control, sending the truck's trailer over the edge of the elevated highway.

The trailer landed on a street below the freeway. The cab was seen flipped over on its side on the freeway.

Police have not said if there were any injuries in this crash.

It appears the trailer was full of mulch.

345 is the elevated overpass just east of downtown Dallas that connects Woodall Rodgers, U.S. 75, I-30 and I-45.

As of 3 p.m., the highway has been reopened, but the road beneath the freeway where the trailer landed remains closed as crews work to clean up the wreckage.
