Metal poles litter ramp and crash to ground after truck overturns in Irving


IRVING, TX (TAUT) – A potentially catastrophic accident was somehow averted after a truck carrying dozens of metal I-beams overturned on the ramp connecting the northbound lanes of President George Bush Turnpike to the westbound lanes of State Highway 183 at Irving.

It happened on May 31.

Preliminary investigation indicates that a 2012 Peterbilt, towing a flatbed trailer, was moving over the flyover when it rolled onto its side, causing its load to come loose

I-beams littered the ramp and dozens more fell from the ground below.

No one was hurt by the falling poles or left strewn across the road.

Bulldozer crews spent much of the afternoon cleaning up the debris.

The driver of the truck was taken to Parkland Hospital in stable condition.
