The driver of the truck, which was not attached to a trailer, was involved in an accident with a police car near Camp Bowie and Merrick in West Fort Worth when the semi drove off down an alley, crossing onto Hulen Street just as a minivan was crossing the intersection of Hulen at Calmont Avenue.

The driver of the semi collided with the minivan, sending both vehicles into a nearby garage.  The minivan driver was killed instantly.
