A stretch of Interstate 35 in Kyle, Texas was closed for several hours after two separate auto accidents occurred on Monday. Both accidents happened during the early morning hours. The first involved three vehicles and two tractor-trailers. One tractor-trailer rear-ended a pickup truck causing it to collide with a second tractor-trailer and bursting into flames. Two men were taken to the hospital for serious injuries after that crash and one was pronounced dead at the crash site. The second accident also involved several vehicles and happened just two hours after the first collision at around 2:30 a.m. This accident also involved tractor-trailers.
Car accidents happen numerous times a day in the United States resulting in the deaths and injuries of thousands of people.
