Fatality confirmed in I-30 accident

Highway still shutdown

GREENVILLE — UPDATE 4:37 p.m. — Texas DPS Trooper Lonny Haschel confirmed that one man has died as a result of the motor vehicle accident on I-30E earlier this afternoon.

The driver of a Ford F250 was driving Eastbound behind an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer when the 18-wheeler slowed down due to traffic. The driver of the Ford noticed the 18-wheeler's reduction in speed too late, and attempted to take evasive action. The Ford truck driver was pronounced dead on the scene, and a child passenger was airlifted to a children's hospital in Dallas. The driver of the 18-wheeler was uninjured.

Haschel said that the highway would probably remain shutdown through rush hour. The name of the deceased driver has not been released, pending the notification of his next of kin.
