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.
