No major injuries after FedEx truck flips over, catches fire on I35E in Lewisville

The Lewisville Fire Department had quite a mess on their hands earlier this morning.

At around 8:30am, Lewisville Fire Department and Police Department were dispatched to a major accident involving a vehicle fire along southbound Interstate 35E near Business 121.

Officials say the driver of a FedEx tractor trailer crashed into a concrete divider as he traveled in the express lanes. The collision caused the semi truck to overturn and catch fire.

The driver was able to escape the wreckage before the flames got too intense.

A second vehicle was hit by debris. The driver was not seriously injured.

Traffic was closed in the area through the afternoon as crews worked to clear up the scene. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
