DALLAS – One person is dead, a child has been taken to a Dallas hospital and another person remains trapped in a sport-utility vehicle flattened by an overturned cement truck Friday.
The crash happened on Texas 183 northbound, just off Interstate 35E, about 3 p.m. Friday and involved the cement truck, the SUV and a motorcycle. The crash toppled the cement truck onto the SUV and spilled its load all over the crash scene.
Dallas police Sr. Cpl. Janice Crowther told Dallas radio station KRLD-AM that the SUV driver was killed and that rescue crews were trying to reach another person trapped in the vehicle.
Aerial video showed fire-rescue crews working feverishly to remove another child from the SUV. The child was wheeled to a waiting ambulance and taken to nearby Children's Medical Center at Dallas.
