Graphic Dashcam Video Captures Moment Big Rig Flies Off Overpass

A horrifying scene unfolded when a tractor trailer driver was killed after exiting an overpass outside of Dallas.

Eyewitnesses are still shaken after seeing the truck land on a side road and burst into flames after flying off the overpass on US 75.

According to a couple interviewed by the WFAA, it was a moment nothing could have prepared them for.

I do not know. It was surreal. It felt like something you see in a movie

Anthony and Renee Reid said it was “like slow motion” as they watched the truck swerve off the overpass before crashing into the ground below.

It was like slow motion, the truck coming down. You can’t believe a truck comes off the bridge and then boom

Several cars pulled up at the intersection of the secondary road, and one of them filmed the harrowing incident with a dashcam.

After seeing the fiery accident, some people (including the Reids) rushed to try to rescue the driver, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The first thing I said was, ‘The driver, where is the driver? The driver.’ My husband said, ‘We have to try to help.’ And I thought, ‘I don’t know if there’s anything we can do’

According to police, the 18-wheeler collided with a car before hitting the guardrail and eventually going over the edge.

While letters and packages were seen under the rubble, it was not determined whether or not the truck belonged to USPS.

While eyewitnesses are still shaken, the general consensus is that the fatal accident was a reminder of just how precious life really is.

I went home and just started crying. I felt like my life, I felt like I died with that person because it was so close.
