Father and Son Escape I-35 Moving Truck Accident Without Serious Injury

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN) – A man and his 10-year-old son are “lucky” their injuries weren’t more serious after the moving truck they were in tumbled down a concrete embankment, said a Bruceville-Eddy police officer.

It happened around 6:15 Sunday morning. Police say the man was driving a moving truck southbound on I-35 when he crashed into a guardrail near exit 318 at Bruceville-Eddy.

The truck rolled down a concrete slope onto the frontage road.

Several hours later, crews were still cleaning up the mangled remains of the truck and putting all the possessions from the moving truck into trailers to haul away.

The 10-year-old boy, who had to be cut out of the cab of the truck, was taken to Hillcrest Medical Center in Waco by an ambulance with two broken arms, police said.

He was then careflighted to McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple. The injuries were not considered serious, and he’s expected to be okay.

The driver escaped the wreck with only minor cuts and bruises.

Police aren’t sure where they were coming from, where they were headed, or how long they had been on the road, but said the crash was probably caused by fatigue.

The moving truck was the only vehicle involved in the crash.
