A trailer that became detached from a pickup truck apparently led to an accident that caused the death of a Texas woman on a recent Wednesday. Police say the fatal accident occurred on Interstate 20 in Mesquite. The accident is reportedly the first fatal crash in Mesquite this year.
A preliminary accident report by the Mesquite Police Department indicates that a pickup truck with a utility trailer attached to it was heading westbound along the highway. Somehow, the trailer dislodged from the truck. The trailer then crossed over the center median and traveled into the eastbound lanes of traffic.
