KVUE reports that the incident occurred when an oversized tractor-trailer traveling on I-35 crashed into a beam of the FM 2484 overpass bridge around 11 am Thursday. The collision caused two beams to become dislodged from the overpass and fall to the roadway below.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, 32-year-old Clark Davis, was killed in the crash. At least three other people were injured in the incident, and were transported to Scott & White Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Authorities do not believe speed was a factor in the collision, but did state that the truck or its load may have been to tall to pass under the bridge.
TxDOT released a statement that the bridges clearance is 14 feet, ½, and that three signs advised a vertical clearance of 13 feet, 6 inches.
