Fatal crash involving two 18-wheelers
A fatal crash involving two 18-wheelers is blocking all but one lane of I-10 outbound at Highway 6 near the Barker Cypress exit. This happened around 5:15 a.m. Thursday. Houston police siad the first driver pulled over to the right shoulder of the freeway because of mechanical issues. He put down emergency equipment to indicate that he was stopped. When he returned to his truck, the driver of a second 18-wheeler hit his vehicle. The second driver is dead. The impact of the crash was so strong, the cab of the second 18-wheeler is not visible. It is inside the back trailer of the first 18-wheeler that broke down. Officials believe the second driver may have fallen asleep as there is no indication he used his brakes.
