Tollway Crash Video Released

DALLAS - The North Texas Tollway Authority on Friday released video showing an explosive crash that happened one day earlier on the Sam Rayburn Tollway in Carrollton.

The video shows an NTTA dump truck proceed from the shoulder into the path of the semi entering the tollway from northbound 35E, before the two vehicles collided in a fiery impact .

The incident happened at about 1:20 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of the tollway, near Interstate 35E.

The semi, which was hauling about 40,000 pounds of frozen chicken, careened across the tollway and crashed in a barrier before bursting into flames a second time, the video shows.

The vehicle's cab eventually began dangling from the elevated roadway. However, the rig driver had been able to escape.

The crash caused no deaths or serious injuries.
