Deadly semi crash closes highway

Early Tuesday morning, unfortunately, started out with a fatal accident in Austin, Texas, which closed several lanes of Highway 183. Furthermore, the accident happened when a tractor-trailer was headed north on the Research Boulevard service road when the driver overcorrected while trying to make the turn, and hit a concrete barrier. As a result, the semi fell 10 feet off the ramp and came to a final rest upside down on the highway. Tragically following the semi accident, the truck caught fire and burned, killing the driver.

This latest semi crash is only one of 526 that have involved other tractor-trailer this year. Many feel that it would be safer if large trucks avoided the area and took the toll road on State Highway 130 instead which would bypass heavy traffic. Many truck drivers don’t feel it necessary to use the toll road because the fee comes out of their own pockets. Either way the Austin area is looking for new options to help keep vehicles safe in the heavily congested areas where semi trucks are more prevalent.
