One Dead, Four Injured In Multi-Vehicle Collision On I-40 East of Shamrock!
A series of crashes involving large rigs resulted in one fatality and four injuries. Four miles east of Shamrock, on I-40, the collision occurred at about eight in the morning.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reports that a pickup truck pulling a trailer jackknifed, closing the westbound lanes of I-40. There was about a 3/4-mile backlog in traffic.
The 26-year-old Parampreet Singh Deol of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, rear-ended another large rig after failing to notice the backup in time.
The second colossal rig hit a third, and the third hit a fourth, setting off a domino effect. At the scene, Deol was pronounced deceased.
