A Texas woman has been killed in a multi-vehicle accident that left a Denton County road closed for several hours. The woman, age 50, is from Rhome, Texas. She died in a four-vehicle pileup on State Highway 114 on Sept. 8, according to official reports. Authorities say that the truck accident involved a Freightliner, another semi-truck and two other private vehicles.
Investigators say that the two trucks -- one eastbound and the other westbound -- collided at about 6:45 p.m. on the evening of the incident. The Freightliner had reportedly been hauling rocks; it drifted into oncoming traffic. The Freightliner truck then struck a sedan that was driven by the decedent, along with a Chevrolet SUV that was traveling behind the decedent's vehicle. Two occupants in the Chevrolet were treated at the scene; they suffered only minor injuries.
