HOUSTON (CNN) — Authorities believe the driver of an 18-wheeler is dead after the truck went off a bridge in Houston.
The accident happened early Thursday morning. Police say initially there was a hit-and-run crash involving a car.
The car was hit by another semi, but that semi-driver left the scene.
A Harris County sheriff’s deputy was taking the report for that accident when the driver of another semi swerved to miss the crash scene, crashing through a guardrail and dropping 20 to 30 feet off the bridge and into the water.
Police don’t think the driver was able to escape.
