Deadly 18-wheeler fire shuts down I-35 in both directions in Waco


FROM KCEN Channel 6

Firefighters responded to a deadly, fiery multi-vehicle crash on I-35 underneath the South Valley Mills overpass in Waco Tuesday afternoon.

In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Waco Police Sergeant Patrick Swanton said there were at least two fatalities in the crash, which involved four 18-wheelers with trailers and two passenger vehicles. Swanton said a passenger vehicle under one of the semis was too mangled to accurately determine how many deceased victims were inside.

One of two confirmed deceased victims was one of the 18-wheeler drivers, while the second was in one of the passenger vehicles, Swanton said.
