Three people are dead and five are injured following an 18-wheeler accident in Seguin, Texas.
According to KSAT, the accident occurred around 3 pm Thursday when an 18-wheeler transporting meat on Interstate 10 lost control and collided with a guardrail before bursting into flame.
Police suspect the driver of the 18-wheeler may have braked abruptly as vehicles changed lanes to avoid TxDOT workers in the area. Slick roads may have also been a factor in the crash.
The initial crash caused a chain-reaction of collisions, involving four other vehicles.
Three people were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. They were identified as Jason A. Howell, 48, and Jason N. Sanchez, 36, of San Antonio and Joseph D. Cline, 37, of Marion.
Two people were transported to the same hospital, and two others were treated at the scene.
