Semi truck driver killed after vehicle flies off overpass

A tractor-trailer driver died after a collision forced his truck to fall off a Texas freeway overpass before bursting into flames, according to police and reports.

The large drill appeared to be heading north on US-75 when it collided with another vehicle just before 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Allen Police Department.

The impact forced the truck to veer off the right side of the overpass and crash onto the access road below, killing the driver, police said.

Dashcam video footage obtained by the WFAA shows the moment the 18-wheeled vehicle pulls off the overpass and rotates 180 degrees on its back before catching fire.

The truck driver was later identified as Gustavo Gomez, 71, WFAA reported. The other driver was not injured, according to police.

Letters and packages were strewn across the roadway after the crash, some with United States Postal Service markings, the outlet said.

USPS later confirmed that Gomez was a contractor delivering mail for the Postal Service.

The crash, which happened about 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, caused significant delays in the area, according to Allen officials, as cleanup crews and investigators worked at the scene.
