Major delays on I35 in Denton due to serious crash involving overturned 18-wheeler

Multiple emergency responders from the Denton Fire Department and Denton Police Department are working a serious crash on northbound I35 just south of University Drive (Highway 380).

The crash reportedly involves multiple vehicles including one overturned 18-wheeler. The 18-wheeler was carrying large gallons of automobile fluids and oils.

One vehicle crashed into the trailer area of the overturned truck. Firefighters extricated at least one person.

The department’s Hazardous Materials unit is currently on scene assessing the situation.

All northbound lanes were diverted, but at this time, it appears one northbound lane has been opened. There are still major delays on both directions of the highway. Southbound lanes are opened. The highway may be closed again to allow for heavy duty wreckers to upright the semi truck.

Police confirm no fatalities from the crash. Specific details on injuries has not yet been released.
