The highway is a dangerous place for anyone to be, especially when they have to exit their vehicle. There are a variety of reasons as to why this might happen, but it can all too often lead to tragic situations. For instance, a man was standing outside of his disabled truck on Highway 287 just by the I-20 exit in Arlington. While he was doing so, another car lost control and drove off of the bridge crashing into the man and his broken down truck.
The driver of the car that lost control had to be taken to the Medical Center of Arlington to be treated for non-life threatening injuries, but the man outside of his truck was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The cause of the accident is believed to be the icy conditions that have recently been plaguing the nation.
