Three people were killed earlier today after two 18-wheeler trucks crashed head on into each other on the section of I-30 near Rockwall County, Texas. Initial investigations found that the accident happened on Wednesday morning (June 29) at around 5:00 a.m. Interstate 30, near the Fate and Royse City neighborhoods.

An 18-wheeler moving west on the highway crossed the median strip, counterflowing against oncoming traffic where it would eventually crash head-on into another heavy rig. Reports say a third vehicle was also damaged in the accident. Local police authorities and first responders count three fatalities resulting from the accident. Their identities have yet to be verified.

The deadly crash shut down traffic on I-30’s eastbound lanes, specifically on the sections between FM 35 and FM 2642. Motorists are advised to find alternate routes. Accidents like this highlight the very real danger posed by out-of-control heavy rigs on the road.
