A pedestrian died tragically Tuesday, after being hit by an out-of-control 18-wheeler along I-20 near Colorado City, in Mitchell County, Texas.

18-Wheeler Swerved to Avoid Earlier Accident

According to a preliminary report filed by the Texas Department of Public Safety, the fatal accident occurred around 7:00 a.m. on February 20th.

An 18-wheeler driven by a 55-year-old El Paso man was traveling west on I-20, when it swerved to avoid an earlier crash. The rig then drove into a barrow ditch on the side of the road.
