Major Wreck at Dangerous Intersection Leaves One Dead

A serious accident happened this afternoon at the new light on Woodrow Road and US 87.

KMAC 28 is reporting that at 2:30 today a tractor trailer collided with another that was stopped at the light, pushing it into an SUV.

At least 11 emergency vehicles were at the accident, and the Jaws of Life and Aerocare were both called to the scene.

The driver of one of the semis, 45 year old Jorge Santos, was airlifted to a hospital but has since died from his injuries.

Traffic in all directions near the intersection has been diverted, with US 87 traffic being diverted onto Loop 493.

This is the second crash at the intersection so far today, with a rollover happening earlier this morning.
