Fatality in 18-Wheeler Rollover Near Roscoe


ROSCOE, TX — Tragedy struck as a truck tractor pulling a semi-trailer apparently hydroplaned in pouring rain in Interstate 20. The driver lost control and ended up rolling over. Inside the cab, the driver and co-driver were victims. The co-driver was in the sleeper berth when the crash happened. Texas DPS said there was one fatality in that crash.
 The 18-wheeler rollover happened on I-20 in Nolan County near mile marker 232, just west of Roscoe. The semi was traveling eastbound. 
 Meanwhile, in the westbound lanes near the same mile marker, there was a second roll-over crash. Few details were released on this crash, but the pouring and blinding rain was a factor, DPS said. DPS also cited severe winds as a contributing factor.
Both crashed happened at approximately 4:30 p.m. Monday.
