Driver survives after truck falls from Orange overpass

ORANGE - A driver is recovering after their truck fell from an overpass in Orange.

Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers said just before 10:30 a.m. Saturday, an 18-wheeler changed lanes on Interstate 10 near the Simmons Dr. overpass.

The big rig sideswiped a pickup truck, causing the vehicle to flip off the Interstate and land in a field.

The driver of the pickup truck was trapped in the wreckage for a short time but survived the crash.

That person is receiving treatment at a local hospital.

Troopers continue to investigate the crash and have not released if anyone faces citations.
