1 dead after multi-vehicle accident involving two semi-trailers on FM 1593

DPS is investigating a fatal accident that happened on FM 1593 early Monday morning.

DPS Spokesperson Sgt. Ruben San Miguel says a red pickup truck was driving south when, for reasons still under investigation, crossed the center line.

The pickup crashed into the rear axels of a semi-trailer and then spun back into on-coming traffic.

Another semi-trailer attempted to serve left to avoid collision, but hit the pickup truck causing the trailer to overturn onto the driver side door.

The cab of the trailer then caught fire, but the driver managed to escape with no injuries.

The driver of the red pickup truck was pronounced dead on the scene.

This accident is still under investigation and we will update the story when more information is made available.
