A trucking accident involving an 18-wheeler and a Hyundai early this morning resulted in the death of the car’s driver. The trucking accident occurred at approximately 2.a m. this morning on the Sam Rayburn Tollway near Custer Road in Allen. Investigators believe that the driver of the car collided with the right guardrail before moving into the center lane of traffic. The 18-wheeler was traveling behind the car at the time and was unable to stop and avoid the trucking accident. The 18-wheeler struck the driver’s side of the car and pushed it hundreds of yards down the tollway. The northbound tollway will remain closed until noon today.
