Lanes of traffic on northbound I-35 near the U.S. Highway 82 bridge remain closed this evening, Friday, April 2, after a fatal crash earlier today, according to Texas Highway Patrol Staff Sgt. Mark Tackett.

Tackett said the crash occurred around 2:12 p.m. He said the driver of a Toyota passenger vehicle was traveling on the northbound service road and lost control of the car. The driver, who has yet to be identified, struck a curb and went across both lanes of the service road, went backwards, slid down an embankment and across I-35. The driver then hit a concrete barrier and went back into the main lanes of traffic on the interstate where the Toyota was struck by a motor home, Tackett said.

The driver of the Toyota died.
