    Default 2 Die when 18-Wheeler falls off Freeway bridge

    2 Die when 18-Wheeler falls off bridge

    Link to Story with Pictures and Video from the Scene

    DALLAS Two people were killed Wednesday afternoon when an 18-wheeler careened off the Woodall Rogers Freeway onramp onto Interstate 35 East and fell atop a passing car.

    The car was going east on Continental Avenue at about 3 p.m., police said. Police said they believe the truck was taking a curve when its load shifted, causing it to flip over the freeway guardrail onto a vehicle on the street below, Sgt. Gil Cerda said.

    The truck driver was thrown from the vehicle and died. and the crushed driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not identified either the victims, Cerda said. The truck was carrying small metal cylinders, he said.

    Heard about it on the way to work this afternoon, I feel so bad for the families effected by this. I've been on that turn on Woodall Rogers MANY times and it can be dangerous for a semi or any large vehicle, also driven under it on that very same street (continential)..i'll probably be real paranoid from now on driving around that part of downtown Dallas with all those bridges.

    On a serious side, I feel sorry for their families.

    The latest police reports are saying that the load in the truck did not shift, but that high speed of the 18-wheeler most likely contibuted to the tragedy.

    The Speed Limit on the ramp that goes from Woodall Rogers Frwy around and down to Stemmons Frwy is said to be 30mph.....But, many cars and trucks take that ramp doing faster than 30.

    The Police are measuring skid marks on the ramp to attempt to determine the speed of the 18-wheeler before it skidded and then careened over the ramp down onto the unfortunate woman. BTY, the woman had just left her job at Hooters just up the street. Her grandmother spoke on the News last night...
