Semi trucks collide on Texas/Oklahoma border

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.

The roads were reported to be very foggy at the time of the crash, so this could have played a role, though the police are still trying to determine the exact cause to find out which driver was at fault. One driver wasn't hurt, but the other did have injuries that have been described as minor, so he was taken to Mercy Hospital, which is located in Ardmore. He was then treated and released.

One of the semi trucks was full of cattle. Police said that some of the cattle escaped and ran around on the road, while others were killed. The accident also caused a huge traffic backup that reached from the scene of the crash to the intersection where Highway 82 meets the interstate.

Those who are hurt in truck accidents must know what legal rights they may have to financial compensation.
