Traffic was backed up on Zapata Highway this morning. I saw a big rig stalled in the south-bound lane. Later I learned that a man was killed.
A man in his 40s was hit by the tractor-trailer

A brick median was recently installed along Zapata Highway, and a traffic light is one block from the scene of the accident. I don't know that more could've been done as far as safety measures, but I'm sure somebody is going to suggest putting speed bumps on U.S. 83 so things like these don't happen again.


  1. ___pro 8 news scooped you this time and you live a lot closer to the scene . . .

  2. the tractor trailer was from Mexico. wonder what's gonna happen to him.
