Truck Driver Dies In Fiery Crash After Colliding With Parked Semi Along I-35
Pauls Valley, Oklahoma – A semi-truck driver died Monday morning in a crash along I-35 involving another semi-truck.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol the crash occurred at about 7:30 a.m. when a 2015 Volvo semi was struck from the rear by a 2005 Freightliner driven by a 61-year-old Carlos Escoto of Garland, TX.
