SAN ANTONIO – A 62-year-old man was killed Thursday morning after his 18-wheeler fell off a highway north of downtown.
Jose Marquez Aguillon was traveling west on the upper level Interstate 10 West near North Laredo Street around 7 a.m. when he lost control of his 1997 Peterbilt, police said.
The 18-wheeler slid across the main lanes of the highway when it clipped a Honda Accord before hitting a concrete retaining wall, police said. Moments later, the big rig rolled over the wall and fell onto the highway below.
Aguillon was pronounced dead at the scene.
