Three people were hospitalized Sunday afternoon following a multi-vehicle wreck along Interstate 10 in Orange, Texas, that began with an out-of-control 18-wheeler.

18-Wheeler Went into Skid, Triggering Crash

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the chain-reaction crash was initiated by a 2018 Freightliner semi-truck as it approached an uneven section of pavement at approximately 2:00 p.m. on October 31st. After crossing the uneven roadway, the 18-wheeler driver attempted to apply his brakes but went into a skid and veered into the left lane, where it struck a four-door sedan.

The driver of a 2017 Harley Davidson motorcycle attempted to stop as he approached the wreck but lost control and slid a short distance away from the previous crash.

All three vehicles caught fire at the scene.

Paramedics transferred all three drivers to an area hospital with unspecified but non-life-threatening injuries. There’s been no further word on their condition, and it’s not clear if any of the victims remain hospitalized.

The driver of the sedan has since been identified as a 47-year-old woman from Metairie, Louisiana, and the driver of the Harley as a 42-year-old man from Alexandria, Louisiana. The 18-wheeler was being driven by a 27-year-old man from Woodbury, New Jersey.

Drivers were asked to avoid Interstate 10 eastbound going into Louisiana. That section of roadway remained closed for several hours to allow for cleanup and repairs.
