Two tractor-trailers collided on the bridge that stretches across the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Technically, the accident was initiated in Texas, in Cooke County, before the trucks got to the bridge. The force from the crash carried them out onto that bridge so that they entered Love County, Oklahoma.
The accident took place on Interstate 35, at the Red River Bridge. The vehicles were traveling north, and those lanes had to be shut down for a time while authorities responded to the accident and cleared the vehicles out of the way. All of this took place at around 1 a.m. on March 19, but police had to work on the scene until approximately 6 in the morning.
