Weatherford, TX – Semi Crash On I-20 Kills One & Injures Seven
Weatherford, TX (April 22, 2019) – On April 19, around 3:42 p.m., Weatherford Police responded to the scene of a semi-truck accident on Interstate 20.
According to reports, a semi-truck crashed into multiple cars and overturned along the eastbound side of Interstate 20, near the exit for Cleburne Highway. The driver of a semi-truck did not notice traffic slowing down on the Interstate.
As a result, the semi-truck rear-ended an SUV, causing the SUV to crash into a passenger car in front of it. The impact of the collision caused the car to spin out and hit a pickup truck in front of it. The semi-truck slid toward the median and rolled over onto its side, striking a pickup truck in the process.
The 44-year-old female driver of the passenger car was killed in the collision. Seven other people involved were taken to various hospitals for treatment of unknown injuries.

We hope everyone who sustained injuries in this very serious accident will get the medical treatment necessary to make a full recovery. Our thoughts are with all of the injured victims and their families right now.
