SAN ANTONIO – One person is dead after a semi-truck had a blowout, crashed and burst into flames on Interstate 10 near Seguin on Thursday morning.

Seguin police said the accident happened around 7 a.m. as the truck was heading eastbound on I-10 near FM 725.

The truck’s tire blew out and caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle, police said. The truck went off a bridge, slid down a slope onto FM 725 and caught on fire.

A passenger, who has not been identified, died at the scene. The driver was taken to a hospital in San Antonio, and their condition is unknown at this time.

The driver and passenger were the only two people in the semi-truck.

The eastbound and westbound lanes of Interstate 10 in the area were closed as police and firefighters investigated the crash. The lanes have since re-opened.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
