GRAND PRAIRIE, TX (CBSDFW.COM) — The Grand Prairie Fire Department released video Tuesday from an early morning crash. An 18 wheeler was heading down I-30 near McArthur when the driver allegedly fell asleep.
The truck careened of the road and over a retaining wall near a bridge. Sparks and dust could be seen in the black and white video captured — from what appears to be — a camera on a set of stop lights.
“We are happy to announce the driver has been released from the hospital with only minor abrasions,” said officials in a tweet.
Officials said that the driver faces a possible charge of Failure to Maintain Proper Control.
The highway was opened back up early Tuesday afternoon.
