Big rig crashes into River Road bridge; Hwy. 75 NB shut down

Posted:

A tractor trailer rig crashed into the River Road bridge just north of the Red River on U.S. Highway 75. This happened about 12:35 p.m. today.

The truck driver was flown by helicopter ambulance to a Dallas hospital.

The northbound lanes of the highway were shut down during the clean-up. Officials said there is quite a bit of debris from the broken apart trailer, after the rig crashed into the overpass support beams.

This is the third big rig accident at this overpass in a year.
